Prizery taps new managing director

South Boston News
Townes-Yancey / February 18, 2019

Angela Townes-Yancey has been named the Prizery's new managing director.

Townes-Yancey is a past director of the Mentor Role Model Program and prior to that worked with Halifax United Way as an administrative assistant, program coordinator and development coordinator. She and her family live in Halifax County “where she has been pouring her heart and soul into youth and the community,” said Philippa DeRamus, Prizery board president, in a statement announcing the appointment.

Townes-Yancey expressed excitement about her new position, saying she would work to engage the community in The Prizery’s activities and strive to enrich all lives through the arts. “Once we join together (The Prizery family) all our ideas and visions — our growth can be unstoppable,” Yancey said.

She takes over for Catherine Ballance, who has relocated to Gretna with her husband, former First Baptist Church pastor Bob Ballance. Chris Jones remains as The Prizery’s longtime artistic director.

Townes-Yancey will be joining the Prizery as the performing arts center celebrates the 10th anniversary of Summer Theatre, the arts center’s signature live stage performances by theater professionals and aspiring college-age actors, dancers, singers, choreographers and stagehands. This summer’s lineup of shows includes Broadway favorites Mamma Mia! and Mary Poppins.

As managing director, Townes-Yancey will oversee development of programs, events and activities for children and adults as well as comedy and music nights featuring local talent and artists.
