The Prizery has hired Alison Streeter as its new managing director the board of directors announced Tuesday.
Streeter worked for the past 12 years at Carlbrook School, where she started as advisory and ended as dean of alumni and transition services.
Her professional theatre experience also includes experience at Wagon Wheel Theatre, Enchanted Hills Playhouse and Brown County Playhouse in Indiana, Seaside Music Theatre in Daytona Beach, Florida, and The Prizery.
"The Community Arts Center Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors is thrilled to have Alison coming on board. Her background in administration and education are a foundation The Prizery can build an exciting future on for our community,” said Blair Toner, president of The Prizery Board of Directors. “A long time goal of The Prizery has always included arts education for the next generations of Halifax County, and Alison's experience can bring a whole new direction to that goal."
The role of a managing director is to optimize The Prizery’s mission and facility use. This requires a close, productive working relationship with its long-time Artistic Director Chris Jones, other staff and community stakeholders.
Streeter follows Pat Anderson-Flowers who recently returned to Birmingham, Alabama.
Streeter is well known in the theatrical community in Halifax County. She served on The Prizery Board of Directors from 2010-2013, acting as president of the organization in 2012.

She has appeared in both The Prizery and Halifax County Little Theatre productions.
“I am thrilled to join The Prizery as its new managing director. I have often said that Carlbrook School brought me here over 12years ago, but The Prizery and the people I’ve met through volunteering with Halifax County Little Theatre and The Prizery have kept me here. As the child of musicians, I grew up with the arts and have never ceased to be involved at some level. The opportunity to be able to work full time in the arts is truly a dream come true. Our local community has embraced me over the years and made me feel extremely welcome. I feel honored and privileged to join The Prizery team and help cultivate the arts in Halifax County for years to come.” said Streeter.
She will begin her fulltime duties on Jan. 5.
