By | May 19, 2024

We are pleased to announce that Kaitlin Paige Longoria has been named the new Artistic Director of 5th Wall Theatre.

The 5th Wall board of directors voted unanimously to select Longoria, who has been involved in theater arts since college and has worked with 5th Wall for the past year.

“You don’t have to be around Kaitlin for long to grasp her love of and enthusiasm for the theater,” said Joe Walton, president of the board. “She has proven herself as a 5th Wall advocate, producer and actress. I have no doubt our founder Carol Piersol would wholeheartedly approve of our selection.”

Longoria has worked with 5th Wall for the past year as a contractor, producer and actress. In her new role, she will be responsible for the day-to-day operation of the company. Also, in consultation with the board, she will conceive, develop and implement 5th Wall’s artistic vision and focus.

“Richmond is a vibrant theater town,” Longoria said. “There is a lot of talent in this city, and I believe 5th Wall will continue to play a major role in the resurgence of theater arts in Richmond.”

Kaitlin will be at our booth at the Fan Arts Stroll today and tomorrow! Head on down to meet and greet while enjoying our Porch Play performances.
