Stephen is thrilled to be in his 1st season at the Walnut! Most recently, Stephen spent 8+ seasons as the Director of Marketing and Communications for Arden Theatre Company, in Old City. There he supervised all advertising, publicity, and promotions. He first joined the greater Philadelphia theatre community as the Marketing Manager (later as the Director of Marketing) for the Bucks County Playhouse, in New Hope PA. There, he coordinated, then oversaw all communications-related activities, following the successful 2012 re-launch of the historic Playhouse. Stephen began his theatrical career at the Rochester Broadway Theatre League, in Rochester NY – serving in the Marketing, Audiences Services, and Group Sales Departments. There, he worked national tours of Wicked, Disney’s The Lion King, and Jersey Boys – to name a few.
