Plain Great News from Great Plains Theatre!

Great Plains Theatre is proud to announce that Chris Delay has been named as the new Executive Director at the start of the 25th season.

GPT Board President, John Kolhoff, said, “Chris Delay is the obvious choice for Executive Director. His background in theatre and knowledge of the Abilene community will prove invaluable for the continued success of Great Plains Theatre.”

Chris Delay is an Abilene native and former vice president of the GPT board of directors. He has served as an educator for the past 19 years (the last 7 for USD 435) and has directed countless Kansas youth in high school and middle school theatre programs. Chris’ wife, Jenna, is Principal of Abilene Middle School, and his three children, Harlie, Dylan, and Kenlie, have played active roles both onstage and off in a multitude of Plain Great Players productions.

Mr. Delay has a long history with GPT originating back to the theatre’s start. “I am very excited to continue my involvement with this great organization. Great Plains Theatre has been a part of my family’s lives since its opening season. I am humbled by the board’s support and look forward to the opportunity to bring live theatre arts and 5-star entertainment to my hometown community. Having experienced GPT from on stage, back stage, and the audience, it is an honor to have the opportunity to lead Great Plains Theatre into its 25th season and look forward to the next 25!”

The 25th season of Great Plains Theatre begins June 14th with Pirates of Penzance. Season tickets as well as single show tickets are available by calling the box office at (785) 263-4574 or by purchasing direct at Great Plains Theatre is dedicated to enriching lives through theatre.
