I was privileged to start my career in arts administration at YPT in the early-2000’s. I learned so much from the staff about running a top-notch arts organization, instilling a love for theatre in young people and the importance of having fun at work. “Uncle” Peter Gallagher’s infectious dedication and passion for teaching theatre to young people inspired me as my career verged into teaching drama, and I thank all of the wonderful people on staff that I met there, who I consider close friends to this day. The annual holiday floor crawls are still HANDS-DOWN the best holiday parties I ever attended.
Congratulations on 50 years and here’s to another 50 more!
