Park City’s Egyptian Theatre has hired well-known local, Randy Barton, as the Theatre Manager for the historic Main Street Theatre. Barton is currently host of the afternoon show on KPCW and has been a Summit County resident since 1975.
The new position is part of the Board of Trustees’ plans to restructure and attain a new sustainable business and artistic model. The Theatre Manager’s duties will encompass programming, operations and facility responsibilities.
The Egyptian’s Board of Trustees believes Barton has the right experience to guide the Theatre in its new direction. Barton also understands the history of the Theatre having appeared on the Egyptian stage in some of the very first productions staged by “The Park City Players” – the group that preceded the Egyptian Theatre Company. He will continue doing his afternoon show on KPCW.
“We are pleased and excited about the opportunity to have Randy lead the Theatre during this difficult financial period,” says Jeff Groy, President of the Board of Trustees. “As a long-time resident and widely-known personality, Randy will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to managing the Egyptian and will assist in moving the Theatre forward to a viable future.”
