Young Professionals on Why They Chose Covington

In front of a full house at The Madison Event Center, five young professionals took the stage on Thursday afternoon at the November Covington Business Council (CBC) luncheon to talk about the future of Covington and their role in helping propel the city forward.

The discussion was led by editor and publisher of The River City News, Michael Monks, who asked the five panelists a series of questions ranging from why they decided to locate in Covington and where they see the city five years from now to what is the one thing they would change about the city and how they would pitch Covington to someone considering moving or opening their business in the city.

Serving on the panel were: Kelly Charlton of TCZ Properties, Joe Daniels of Swing This! Kettlebell and Strength Studio in Latonia, Rachel DesRochers of Grateful Grahams and the Northern Kentucky Incubator Kitchen, Jake Rouse of Braxton Brewery, and Brandon Sehlhorstof The Catalytic Fund.

Carnegie Names Maggie Perrino Theater Director

 

(COVINGTON, KY) November 24, 2014– The Carnegie is pleased to announce that Maggie Perrino has been named Theater Director of The Carnegie’s Otto M. Budig Theatre.

 

Perrino, who currently works as the Theatre Program head at Notre Dame Academy in Park Hills, will assume the role of Theater Director in early January—just in time for The Carnegie’s production of WEST SIDE STORY.

“Maggie’s multifaceted background, in both theatre and in education, made her the perfect candidate for our Theatre Director position,” said Carnegie Executive Director, Katie Brass. “Maggie has great ideas for building upon The Carnegie’s already strong theatre programming and we can’t wait to have her as part of The Carnegie family.”

 

An actor, director, choreographer and educator, Perrino draws from a diverse theater background that includes acting credits at the Covedale Center for Performing Arts and Cincinnati Music Theatre and production credits at Notre Dame Academy and New Edgecliff Theatre. Prior to her position at Notre Dame Academy, Perrino served as the Educational Events Coordinator at The Educational Theatre Association in Cincinnati.

 

Perrino’s educational credentials include an undergraduate degree from Miami University and a Master of Arts in Teaching with a certification in theatre from Thomas More College in 2013. In addition to her extensive experience on and off stage, Perrino has more than 20 years of training in dance, including jazz, tap, ballet and hip hop.

 

When asked about her new role with the Carnegie, Perrino shared, “I’ve always admired the work being done at The Carnegie. I see theatre as a transformative experience – a way to engage and connect communities, and that overlays perfectly with the mission of The Carnegie—which is to inspire creativity for all. I look forward to building upon the fantastic work that was carried out by my predecessor, Joshua Steele.”

 

While she is already preparing for her new role, and for WEST SIDE STORY, Perrino’s first official day at The Carnegie will be Monday, January 5, 2015, allowing time for her to assist with the transition of her replacement at Notre Dame Academy.
