Brian Kurtas has been associated with the Walnut Street Theatre since 2007. He began his career here as a performer and in the professional apprenticeship program, and has since dedicated himself to bringing artists together. He now serves our artists and audiences in the various capacities of casting, directing, programming, and literary management, as his function is to identify the highest quality of artists for our historic theatre. His vision behind unforgettable live experiences and storytelling has become a creative solution from the stage to the screen - He spent 4 seasons as the Executive Producer of Gretna Theatre, worked on feature films and tv networks including TLC and HGTV, and created events and entertainment for brands such as T-Mobile and Walmart while at Live Nation. Originally from Lancaster, Brian is a proud Temple alum and a member of the Casting Society of America.
