Bethany Herron

Managing Director

Bethany Herron is an Oakland writer and arts administrator who has worked in Bay Area theaters for the past five years. After studying theater and English literature at San Francisco State, her career took a few strange turns – from driving a freight train to administering shots to kittens – but her passion for storytelling always brought her back to the performing arts. Most recently, Bethany has served as the Associate Director of Development at American Conservatory Theater and Institutional Grants Manager at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. In these roles, her communication skills came to the forefront while she also discovered a talent for analytical approaches to program development and impact reporting. Prior to these roles, she oversaw comprehensive marketing and fundraising campaigns at Environmental Traveling Companions, and balanced the books at a small East Bay publishing house.

Today, at a time when the pace of change in this city, and the world, is accelerating exponentially, I am so honored to be joining Crowded Fire, a company that is devoted to new works that examine the implications of these changes.
