Cast today announces Anna Kelner as their new Head of Marketing and Development, a role Anna will take up in March 2021 following 8 years as Head of Marketing at Leeds Playhouse.

Anna has worked for almost ten years in arts marketing, beginning at the Theatre Royal in Wakefield, her hometown, before moving to one of the largest regional producing theatres in the north; Leeds Playhouse. She worked with the Playhouse throughout their £16m capital redevelopment, and subsequent rebranding and reopening.

Anna Kelner comments:

‘I am a great lover of the arts with a keen interest in theatre and performance, and I am a strong believer in how culture can open up possibilities for people. I’m proud of my Yorkshire roots and can’t wait to work with and for the people of Doncaster at Cast.’

Deborah Rees, Director at Cast comments:

‘Anna is joining us at such an important time for Cast; we’re expanding our digital programme in response to our ongoing closure due to Covid-19, but we’re also looking to the future, planning our re-opening and what that looks like for Cast and Doncaster. We can’t wait to welcome her to the team and work with her as we lead the way for the return of arts and culture in Doncaster’.
