The American Century Theater elected two new members to the Board of Directors and elected new Board Officers at its May 6, 2007 meeting. TACT is a mission focused theater company dedicated to producing 20th Century plays and musicals that are at risk of vanishing from the light of American culture into the darkness.

"The work we do is a key cultural mission for the DC capital area. We are making sure that the past is not lost and unable to inform us today. This is a critical mission as the arts and theater especially struggles into the 21st Century." said Jack Marshall, CEO/Artistic Director, TACT.

The new Board members include:

Peri Mahaley. Mahaley practices law with the firm of Heller Ehman, LLP in Washington, DC. She specializes in litigation and alternate dispute resolution.

"I am delighted that Peri and Anne Marie have joined the American Century Theater Board. They bring a wealth of hands-on non-profit experience and a deep interest in the arts," said Wendy Kenney, TACT Board Chair. "And, they have a great enthusiasm for the TACT mission; one that is unique in the DC area."

The 2007-2008 elected officers of the American Century Theater Board are: Wendy T. Kenney, Chair; Steven Scott Mazzola, Vice Chair/Secretary and Ann Marie Plubell, Treasurer.
