WaterTower Theatre sends word that Artistic Associate/Communications Manager James Lemons is leaving the theater to pursue other opportunities. Lemons most recently directed the regional premiere of the recently discovered Mark Twain play, Is He Dead?
WaterTower Producing Artistic Director Terry Martin sends this over e-mail:
“WaterTower is sorry to announce the resignation of James Paul Lemons, WTT’s Artistic Associate/Communications Manager. After being with WTT for 10 years, James has made the decision to pursue other career opportunities. James came to WTT immediately after an internship at Plano Repertory Theatre under then Producing Artistic Director, Mark Fleischer. He started at WTT as the Box Office Manager and when given opportunities to direct on the WTT main stage quickly established himself as one of Dallas’ brightest young directors, especially in musical theatre. His many directing credits at WTT include The Great American Trailer Park Musical, Urinetown, Enchanted April, and The Spitfire Grill. He has also acted as the Producer of WTT’s Out of the Loop Fringe Festival for the past 6 years and has been integral to its growth and success.
“We are sure that whatever path James takes in his career he will excel. The staff and board of WaterTower wish him well in all his future endeavors.”
