Maggie Perrino

Since starting with The Carnegie in 2015, Perrino has successfully grown The Carnegie’s theatre program and distinguished herself in the region’s theatre community.

Under her leadership, The Carnegie theatre navigated audiences and performers through the pandemic. During this time Perrino founded The Carnegie’s Creative Disruption Committee, an artist-driven consortium dedicated to creating live theatre opportunities during the pandemic and included outdoor productions throughout the Greater Cincinnati region.

More recently, Perrino originated The Carnegie’s Summer Theatre Series. This new repertory series is the region’s only summer stock style programming and proudly creates summer employment opportunities for local theatre professionals and college students.

“Maggie has left an amazing mark on our organization and will forever be a part of The Carnegie family.” said Carnegie Executive Director Kim Best. “Maggie’s passion and experience make her perfect for her new position and SCPA is lucky to be gaining such an accomplished artist and educator. Everyone at The Carnegie wishes her the best of luck in this next endeavor.”

Efforts are currently underway to fill the theatre director position.
