Aurora Fox Arts Center New Executive Producer


The city of Aurora, Colo., is known for its world-class theater, but it's now looking to expand its offerings.

The Aurora Fox Arts Center has announced the hiring of Richard Cowden as its new executive producer, the Denver Post reports.

"Rather than thinking of the Aurora Fox as a community theater in a traditional sense given our professional focus, I want folks to feel welcome here regardless of their background, their cultural identity, their economic status, or even their level of interest in the theatrical art formin other words, I envision the Aurora Fox as the community's theater," Cowden says in a press release.

Cowden comes to the Fox from Denver's Mizel Arts and Culture Center, where he led its cultural activities, including the Wolf Theatre Academy, the Denver Children's Theatre, and the Neustadt JAAMM series, the Post reports.

"We are very excited to have Richard as the new executive producer of the Aurora Fox Arts Center," says Midori Clark, Aurora's director of Library and Cultural Services.

"Rich's vast expertise in all the aspects of theater production, along with his teaching experience, makes him a well-rounded leader and visionary for the Aurora Fox," Clark adds.
