QUINCY — Quincy Community Theatre announced Tuesday the selection of Burgundy Hill as its executive director.
“We are excited to welcome Burgundy to the QCT family,” said Julie Schuetz, president of the QCT Board of Directors. “In her professional life, as a Board member and as a volunteer, Burgundy has exhibited a dedication for serving nonprofits that support all members of our community. Her experience and passion align beautifully with QCT’s mission. We look forward to her leadership, collaboration, and enthusiasm continuing QCT’s nearly 100 years of offering and perpetuating quality theatre entertainment and education in the performing arts through community participation.”
Hill will be coming to QCT from Quincy Public Library, where she serves as the assistant director. She grew up in Pittsfield. Hill earned a degree in communication from Truman State University and a master’s degree in communication from Quincy University.
She moved to Quincy in 2013 and has worked in nonprofit marketing, development and advocacy. Hill lives with her husband, Blaine, and their dog, Artie. She enjoys reading, cooking and spending time with friends and family.
Hill hopes to carry on the high-quality performance and education cultivated by generations of volunteers and staff at QCT. She is passionate about expanding QCT’s resources to underserved areas and developing the theatre’s community engagement efforts through partnerships and collaboration.
She will inherit the position from Sara Reuschel, who announced in October she was leaving to become executive director of the Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools Foundation, and interim Executive Director Dan Conboy.
Hill starts her position on Jan. 18. She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
