Touchstone Theatre this week announced Amy Lynn Strilchuk as its new general manager.

Amy comes to Touchstone with over 12 years of arts administration experience at some of Western Canada’s most prominent new creation companies, including Alberta Theatre Projects, Arts Club Theatre Company, Ballet BC, Gateway Theatre, and Green Thumb Theatre. The core of her work is developing and marketing new Canadian theatre. She has dramaturged over a dozen world premieres by Canadian playwrights and has marketed, publicized, and/or toured acclaimed new works like Onegin (Amiel Gladstone and Veda Hille), The Piano Teacher (Dorothy Dittrich), The Men in White (Anosh Irani), Mom’s the Word 3 (Mom’s the Word Collective), and The Code (Rachel Aberle).

Amy is also part of the leadership team bringing the newly revived Magnetic North Festival to Vancouver in June 2019. 

"The Board is delighted to welcome Amy Lynn Strilchuk as our new general manager. With her passion for Canadian theatre and her great experience working both in the communications field and with many of Western Canada’s finest theatre companies we are confident her contribution to Touchstone Theatre and the larger theatre community will be substantial," said Touchstone president Pamela Hawthorn in a press release.

"I'm so looking forward to working with Amy," said Roy Surette, Touchstone's artistic director. "She is passionate, knowledgeable, well respected and a wonderfully gracious and kind person. And stylish. We are thrilled to welcome her as we embark on our 2018-2019 Season."
