The Glove Theatre Announces Search for General Manager

Community and Board-Led Search Committee to Steer Interview Process

The Glove Theatre officially announces its formal search to fill its newly created General Manager position, the organization’s first hired role in almost two decades.

The theatre’s General Manager will be responsible for everyday operations, including providing top-quality customer and patron services, facility maintenance and cleanliness, liaise production assistance, assist in marketing material productions, and other duties outlined in the job description. Additionally, the General Manager will have an integral role in the Glove Theatre’s evolution in re-establishing itself as a multifaceted venue in Downtown Gloversville.

After a change-of-guard in the board of directors and a prolonged period of inactivity due to the Covid-19 pandemic, The Glove is finally offering regularly scheduled programming to amp up activity while simultaneously preparing for long-term capital improvements. Most recently, The Glove was identified as a prominent project in the City’s Strategic Investment Plan to be submitted to New York State for their recent $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative award.

“The Glove Theatre runs entirely on an incredibly dedicated group of volunteers,” explains Glove Theatre Board of Directors President and search committee member, James Hannahs. “The community kept the theatre running for decades on this model, which is a profoundly noble cause. It is time to adopt a more feasible model that can build over time. We need to hire a general manager to focus on operations so the board can take on the responsibilities of implementing upcoming planning and large-scale capital improvement projects.”

An ad-hoc search committee, comprised of four board members and two members of the community with relevant experience, was created to steer the interviewing and onboarding processes. Kyle Price, Founder and Artistic Director of the Caroga Arts Collective, and Aaron Enfield, Senior Planner with the Fulton County Planning Department, comprise the community-oriented branch of the committee.

Kyle Price is nationally recognized for his musical career, innovative leadership style, and for his advocacy for collaborative programming in the arts and humanities. Price was instrumental in growing the Caroga Arts Collective from a “homemade” music festival to an organization that features 150+ artists in annual programming, attracts 8,000+ individuals to Caroga Lake each season, and employs 8 total positions. Price completed his Masters and Doctorate of Music Degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison as full Fellowship Teaching Assistant under renowned pedagogue cellist and Feldenkrais practitioner, Uri Vardi.

Enfield brings an extensive history of working with nonprofit arts organizations including Proctors Theatre, Hamptons International Film Festival, and Washington National Opera. After working intimately in all aspects of artistic management and capital campaigning and earning a Bachelors degree in Theatre from the University at Albany, Enfield achieved his Masters degree in Urban and Regional Planning at the University at Albany as well.

Interested applicants are encouraged to review the GM job description, which will be live online beginning Monday, May 2nd, at 9AM at www.theglovetheatre.com. The search committee will be receiving applications until May 12th at 8PM.
