OUR PEOPLE

Organizational Structure

Forward Theater has a unique three-branch organizational structure, reflecting our commitments to transparent communication and to the balance between the artistic choices and financial health of our company.

One branch is our administrative staff, which is responsible for the daily operations of our theater. A second branch is our Board of Directors, responsible for financial oversight and long-term fiscal planning. The third branch is our Advisory Company, made up of local professional theater artists, which oversees FTC’s short- and long-term artistic plans.

Our bylaws have mandated paths of communication between these three branches and a system of checks and balances to keep FTC strong, focused on our artistic role in the community, and fiscally responsible.
