After eight years, Julien Boast, Chief Executive of Theatre Royal Brighton (TRB) is leaving the Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) at the end of this month.
Under Julien’s direction at TRB, this historic unsubsidised theatre has been commercially profitable and raised its profile through special partnerships and the Associate Companies Scheme, which includes the Brighton Festival, English Touring Theatre and Rambert Dance Company.
The scheme has been a catalyst for audience development supporting fresh talents emerging from the Brighton scene and gave new artists and performers opportunities to create work for the Theatre Royal Brighton including Zygo Arts, dreamthinkspeak and Spymonkey.
Rosemary Squire joint CEO for ATG said: “Julien is highly regarded in the theatre industry and has made a significant contribution to the success of ATG’s venues in Brighton and Bromley over the last eight years. We wish him well in his future career.”
Julien is also vice chair of the Brighton & Hove Arts Commission, which promotes the city as the leading cultural centre in the South East, and plays an active role as a Regional Council Member for Arts Council England South East.
Julien Boast said: “I have much enjoyed my eight years running Theatre Royal Brighton and Churchill Theatre Bromley, whose audiences are intelligent and discerning. They have really engaged with the work in both theatres. I am indebted to my extremely hard working, loyal and talented teams, who have made so much happen, and to my colleagues at ATG. Having worked solidly for 25 years, I will be using time to reflect on what I want to do next and am looking forward to seeking fresh challenges in the future.”
