I am pleased to announce Dr Tania Price has been appointed as incoming Chair of the Theatre Royal Management Board, following the retirement of Craig Stephens.

Dr Price brings extensive knowledge and experience to the role, having been a member of the Theatre Royal Management Board since April 2020 and previously serving on the Board of Tasmania’s Festival of Voices and TasRacing.

She also has a professional background in stakeholder and issues management, along with a PhD in Creative Arts, and I look forward to working with her as she leads the Theatre Royal Management Board into its next exciting chapter.

I thank outgoing Chair Craig Stephens for his extensive and substantial contribution to the Theatre Royal Management Board over the past 12 years.

Mr Stephens has stewarded the Board at a time of immense change and transformation, through the redevelopment of the Theatre Royal and The Hedburg building, and I wish him the very best in all his future endeavours.

Elise Archer, Minister for the Arts
