Epps named operations director at The Colonial / August 07, 2013
Lauren Epps has been named the new director of operations for the Colonial Center in South Hill, filling the position after it came open with the recent departure by Lisa Jordan.

Epps has been a member of the Colonial box office staff for a year and is already familiar with the day-to-day demands of the operation.

Epps has a theater background as well as business management experience and studied journalism at UNC-Greensboro. She enjoys writing when she gets the chance. Currently a resident of Roanoke Rapids, N.C., Epps said she plans to move closer to South Hill in the very near future and looks forward to being active in the community.

“I have large shoes to fill for Lisa Jordan. She did a great job from the onset and people have grown to know and respect her here. I hope people will warm up to me as they did to Lisa and will give me the same chance to do a great job,” said Epps.

Other staff members were recognized at the Chamber lunch, including Doug Wright, who is Technical Director for the Colonial as well as a C.A.T.S. (Colonial Actors Theatre Society) director. Wright also is a familiar face around the theater and has been active with many of its productions over the past few years.

Also recognized was Alicia Washburn, who is employed with the box office staff and is the choreographer for C.A.T.S productions. She studied locally for years at Shannon’s School of Dance, and also at the Chesterfield School of Ballet. She minored in dance at Radford University. She currently teaches at BOTOFOGO’s in South Hill.

Amber Gall, also with the box office staff, is originally North Myrtle Beach, S.C. and moved here in September. She has a Masters in Christian Education and majored in theater at Coastal Carolina University.
