Host, The Kate Calendar
Executive Director, the Kate
We know no one who works harder than Brett as he heads the team at the Kate that serves up week after week cultural joy and enrichment right here in the CRV! He joins us every Tuesday to run down the calendar...
Brett Elliott serves as the Executive Director of the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center (the Kate) assuming responsibility for talent booking, budgeting, fundraising, and all aspects of operations. Brett earned his MFA in Arts Leadership from DePaul University, a joint program pairing full-time employment with Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Brett previously worked with Broadway in Chicago, the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, and Australia’s ‘One Step at a Time Like This.’ Holding a BA in Theater from Saginaw Valley State, Brett is a very proud product of the Kennedy Center’s American College Theater Festival, an organization that truly gave him his start.
From concerts to opera to comedy to movies and so much more, the Kate offers so much variety...all of it inspiring and growing the CRV. Each week, the Executive Director joins us to break it all down...and give you a little advance notice on some of the performances that will sellout quickly...so get the lowdown from one of the great venues in our area...every week on iCRV Radio. Plus...we get an update on the Kate's Museum, which has great exhibits and lectures/talks and is yet another reason to support and visit 300 Main Street in Old Saybrook.
