Center Stage Theatre has appointed Shelton native and resident Carla Supersano Sullivan as its new managing director.

The Shelton venue provides theatrical performances, educational programming and volunteer opportunities.

In her new role, Sullivan will oversee and manage the organization, including strategic planning, fundraising, operations, fiscal management and marketing.  She will report to the organization’s board of directors.

John Corraro, board chairman, said Sullivan’s background, which includes working in theater and for nonprofit organizations, “gave her the perfect, well-rounded experience we were looking for to steer Center Stage into 2022 and beyond.” 

Sullivan has served as vice president of external relations for the Shubert Theatre in New Haven, managing all outward facing operations during the pandemic. Previously, she was its director of development, and worked to grow its donor base and grant revenue. She also was involved in creating signature fundraising events.

“I am honored and humbled to serve Center Stage as its first managing director.  It is the ideal match for my professional experience and my love and passion for theater and arts education,” Sullivan said.
