From Arts Marketing: Chad Bauman writes about his four-and-a-half years at Arena Stage. When one decides to pursue a career in a field they love, like many theater artists I know, these two adjectives are not mutually exclusive; in fact, many would argue that you can't have one without the other. When joining Arena Stage, I knew there were very few precedents for what we needed to accomplish, and with the opening of the Mead Center and a 2.5 year transition ahead of us, a clear path wasn't always available. It was an opportunity that intimidated me, but I knew that I would get an education of a lifetime.
In looking back, I've learned quite a bit along the way
