Award-Winning Director Rick Lombardo to Lead Penn State School of Theatre

When former director Dan Carter retired a little over a year ago, we were fortunate enough to have faculty member William Doan lead us as interim director for the past year. After a nationwide search, we can now announce that Rick Lombardo has accepted the position of Director of the School of Theatre and will begin his new role on July 1, 2018! We are so thankful to have had Dr. Doan's leadership this past year, and we're excited to begin this new chapter!
