Icons in Business: Brenda DeVita, American Players Theatre

At the first Icons in Business presentation of 2022, Brenda DeVita, artistic director for American Players Theatre in Spring Green shared insight into how she continues to advance APT’s mission of bringing the classics to a varied audience, the diversity and inclusion initiatives within APT, and the challenges and opportunities facing the theater.

The March 1 event at the Madison Concourse Hotel was well attended by area professionals eager to resume in-person networking.

Located in Spring Green, American Players Theatre staged its first production, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” in 1980. The theater would eventually grow to become one of the country’s most popular classical theaters, welcoming more than 110,000 patrons each season and lauded by the Wall Street Journal as the “best classical theater in the country.”
