Award-winning actor and educational theater specialist Marques Brown has stepped down from his position as Director of Education & Outreach at Theatre Memphis to teach theater at Cordova High School. Brown, who has been part of TM's ShoWagon troupe for eight years, describes the transition as "bittersweet."
Brown walks out the door just as two new employees join TM's design staff. Guy Lee Bailey steps into
newly-created position of Costume Shop Manager/Assistant Designer and Diane Kinkennon has accepted a position as the theater's new Lighting Designer.
Bailey, who comes to TM from the Signature Theatre in Arlington, Virginia and has also worked at Seaside Music Theater in Daytona Beach, Florida. Kinkennon, a U of M alum, has an extensive resume and has designed lights for various local productions including Circuit Playhouse's celebrated production of The Laramie Project.
