Theatre L'Homme Dieu announces Hoch as new executive director

Theatre L'Homme Dieu in Alexandria has announced the appointment of Joanna Hoch as the executive director. Hoch recently came from Actors' Shakespeare Project (ASP) in Somerville, Massachusetts where she served as the manager of Patron Services and Education Projects.

Prior to ASP, Hoch was the general manager at the Weathervane Theatre, an Actors' Equity Association summer-stock theater in Whitefield, New Hampshire, where she led the theater each year for 10 summers.

As a resident of New Hampshire, Hoch moved to Alexandria to take over the position.

"Theatre L'Homme Dieu runs on a unique model for summer theater, which will allow me to get to know quite a bit of the Minnesota theater community over the course of the summer," Hoch said. "After working with the Weathervane Theatre, which is entering its 47th season, it is exciting to be working with another theater with such a long and rich history of producing and presenting great works."

Theatre L'Homme Dieu produces and presents live theater, fine arts and educational programming that celebrate culture and nurtures community. It is about to embark on its 52nd season.

Productions this season will run from June 26 through August 14. They include God of Carnage, Legacy: A Tribute to the King of Pop, The 39 Steps, Doubt: A Parable, Gilligan's Island: The Musical and a one-night only performance of For the Birds with Kevin Kling.
