General Manager Appointed

The Chair of HotHouse Theatre, Paul McGill, today announced the appointment of Julie Amos as General Manager. “Following an extensive recruitment process, the Board is delighted to make this exciting executive appointment” Mr McGill said.

“HotHouse Theatre is a leading professional theatre company in regional Australia, playing an important role in the cultural landscape of Albury-Wodonga, the broader
region and nationally,”

Ms Amos joins HotHouse from The Australian Ballet where she is the General Manager, Orchestra Victoria, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Australian Ballet. A not for profit
organisation, Orchestra Victoria is one of Australia’s two specialist pit orchestras and is the performance partner of The Australian Ballet, Opera Australia and Victorian Opera.

Ms Amos has both a Bachelor of Music and Technical Production. She has worked for numerous arts companies, festivals and in presentation teams for major international sporting events.

Relocating to Melbourne in 2007, Ms Amos joined the management team at Orchestra Victoria and moved to The Australian Ballet in 2010. In her current role at The Ballet, Ms Amos is one of the youngest General Managers of a Major Performing Arts Company in Australia and is also an executive member of The Australian Ballet.

Orchestra Victoria is a not-for-profit company with 72 full-time employees and an annual operating budget in excess of 10 million dollars.

“Julie brings a range of strategic skills and extensive expertise in both arts management and technical production to the General Manager role. Julie grew up in rural NSW, and is keen to bring her passion for the arts to our region. Her appointment will ensure HotHouse Theatre remains a cultural force locally, regionally and nationally.”

Speaking on her appointment, Ms Amos said “HotHouse Theatre is a uniquely positioned organisation, and one that is critical to the development of new Australian theatre works and artists. The organisation has a rich history and it is apparent the Albury-Wodonga community take great pride in the success of their theatre company. I am excited and inspired to be joining forces with the board and Artistic Director Lyn Wallis as custodians of this important company.”

Mr McGill concluded by saying “I am delighted to welcome Julie to HotHouse Theatre on behalf of the Board and Artistic Director Lyn Wallis, as we celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2017 with a vibrant season of new Australian works presented at the Butter Factory Theatre, Wodonga.”
