Posted in Business Announcements



LANESBORO, MN. - The Commonweal Theatre Co. announces new administrative staff members and duties as it begins its twenty-second season producing live, professional theatre in historic downtown Lanesboro. Commonweal operates under a rare artist/administrator model where all company members share responsibility for both the business and performance aspects of the organization, which has been the foundation for the theatre's sustainability since its founding in 1989.



Stef Dickens, formerly Commonweal's Director of Administration, has now taken on the newly created position of Director of Development. A Luther College graduate, Dickens has been a part of Commonweal's company for the past seven years and has appeared onstage recently in Man of La Mancha, Peer Gynt, and Steel Magnolias. As head of Commonweal's Development Team, she will be responsible for grant monies, individual and business donations for the theatre, and will be closely involved with Commonweal's primary donors, The Million Dollar Club.



A Commonweal artist since 2000, Stela Burdt has joined the theatre's Executive Team as the new Director of Administration, in charge of human resources, scheduling, and account management. Burdt, who performed last year in The Odd Couple, A Midnight Dreary, and The 1940's Radio Hour, will also
