Historic Wilson Theatre Has New Director
“We are pleased to announce that Kris Faux has been selected as our new theatre director,” said Wilson Theatre and Event Center board chairman Larry Duff. “We look forward to her helping expand the public involvement in the theatre and promote the use of the event center.”
Faux said she has been involved with the theatre for nearly two decades since efforts to restore the historic building began in 2000.
"I love the Wilson Theatre and I love Rupert,” said Faux. “I have been here from the beginning when they were just cleaning the building out and making plans for the restoration.” Her responsibilities now go beyond that cleanup to bookkeeping, coordination of all events, public and private, helping with all theater shows and experiences, and promoting increased community involvement. Besides 9-4, Mon-Fri her work time include “10 flex hours a week where I will be involved in the actual events taking place here,” she said.
