Introducing our New Executive Director!

We’re delighted to introduce the Portland Revels community to our new Executive Director, Sara Hennessy. Sara brings 20 years of non-profit arts organization experience managing fundraising, audience development, grant-writing, donor relations, marketing, ticketing and subscriptions. Since 2014, she led the Artists Repertory Theatre Travel with ART program, where she planned and led theatre tours to New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles and London. She is a Co-Founder of L.A.’s Furious Theatre—named to LA Weekly’s “Best Theatres of the Decade” list—where she served as Co-Managing Director for eight years. 

As a theatre producer, Sara is the recipient of the Los Angeles Drama Critic’s Circle Award, the Back Stage Garland Award, LA Weekly Theatre Award, Stage Scene LA Award and Pasadena’s Gold Crown Award for Furious Theatre’s contribution to the Arts in Pasadena. She is also an actor—you may have seen her onstage at Artists Repertory Theatre and Corrib Theatre, as well as on NBC’s Grimm and Netflix’s Trinkets. 

Sara has also worked as a corporate trainer for companies like Capital Group and Yahoo! where she was responsible for IT, Customer Service, Sales and Leadership Training, managing large-scale international training projects, delivering training and developing training materials. 

Sara lives in Portland and has two children with her husband, Dámaso Rodriguez (Artistic Director of Artists Repertory Theatre): Dámaso (14) and Eva (12).
