The Englert Theatre has appointed Mission Creek Festival founder Andre Perry as its new executive director.

Perry, a Princeton University graduate, will continue to serve as president and primary programmer for the Mission Creek Festival and as a talent buyer for the Mill, 120 E. Burlington St.

“The Englert is such an important part of Iowa City’s artistic landscape,” Perry said in a statement. “As executive director, I hope to continue to cultivate that reputation while celebrating and further developing our community’s rich tapestry of artistic performance.”

Sean Fredericks served as the historic theater’s executive director before leaving the post earlier this year. Perry was selected from a pool of national and local applicants.

Perry has also worked as an academic adviser at the University of Iowa and as a middle-school teacher in San Francisco.
