Richard Poore is now on the job as the new Director of Performing Arts in Petrolia.
He took the reigns on Monday.
“I'm really excited about being here and really excited about the upcoming (theatre) season,” said Poore during an interview with LambtonShield.com.
The new theatre season at the VPP begins on May 24.
“My primary focus will be marketing and the implementation of the VPP Strategic Plan,” he added.
The plan was passed late last year and is meant to guide the community through 2020.
Poore, 52, joins the town staff after nearly 12 years on the job with the Imperial Theatre in Sarnia.
