Ross Ragland Theater (RRT) has named Scott Mohon as its new Executive Director.
Theresa Silver has served as Interim Executive Director since July of 2018 after former Director Mark McCrary resigned. Theresa was the President of Ragland’s Board of Directors just prior to stepping in as Interim.
RRT’s Board of Directors conducted a national search to fill the position. Ragland Board Chair, Lynne LeBlanc said the search committee considered various viable candidates before deciding on Mr. Mohon.
“We are fortunate and privileged to have Mr. Mohon’s capabilities and background join our RRT family as well as our community,” LeBlanc said. “We humbly thank Theresa for her gracious support and hard work as our search committee worked through this process.”
Mr. Mohon has substantial experience in the management of operations and personnel for theatres, theatre companies, theme parks, and performing arts centers working as an executive and managing director, producer, performer, and stage manager. He graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and attended the Masters of Fine Arts program at the University of California, Irvine.
Mr. Mohon’s career has taken him from coast to coast and border to border working for organizations such as Universal Studios, Hey City Theatre, Walton Arts Center, Newport Performing Arts Center, Queens Theatre, Theatre Victoria and the Leo J. Welder Center for the Performing Arts, and on Broadway.
“I look forward to working with the amazing talents of the Ragland staff, guild, the board of directors and Klamath Falls community in the months and years to come,” Scott said. “Ross Ragland Theater is one of the few organizations in the region with the ability to connect with each and every Basin resident and visitor, which is pretty incredible. Ragland’s Youth Education and Outreach programming and services have an impact on the community that goes beyond our popular presenting and producing series.”
Ragland is the venue of choice for more than 400 events a year. RRT hosts everything from local non-profit, arts, education and service-centered organizations to premiere entertainers and private parties. Additionally, Ragland is an attraction for tourism, bringing in visitors who make a dynamic economic impact by those who stay in Klamath Falls hotels, dine at local restaurants, and shop in the downtown stores.
“Already a tremendous asset and resource to the region, Ragland looks to continue to expand and improve its service to our community in this 30th Anniversary Season and beyond,” Scott stated.
