The Liberty Theatre has been awarded $30,000 from the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation over a period of two years to support staff expansion.

The theater has increased the amount of programming in concerts, dance, theater, special events and arts during the past two years. In the 2017-18 season, there was an average of seven events each month with more anticipated in 2018-19.

Two new positions were created. Nancy Schwickrath was hired in June as an administrative assistant to Executive Director Jennifer Crockett. Nancy has a bachelor’s degree in stage management from Rutgers University and has worked on several stages in New York prior to moving to Oregon in 2003.

A second position was created to ease the workload of Larry Bryant, technical director. Kelly Green was hired as technical assistant in July. Kelly attended Humboldt State as a theater lighting and technology major. He moved to Oregon in 2003 and to Astoria in March 2016.
