Chichester Festival Theatre has appointed Jeremy Woodhouse as producer.

He joins from English Touring Theatre, where he is currently a producer, and replaces Georgina Rae, who moves to become the organisation’s head of planning and projects.

Fellow CFT producer Amelia Ferrand-Rook continues in her role.

Woodhouse’s previous roles have included executive director at Theatre503 in south London. At English Touring Theatre he has worked on productions including Jessica Swale’s Nell Gwynn [1] at Shakespeare’s Globe and the current tour of Conor McPherson’s The Weir [2].

He also sits on the board of Oldham Coliseum Theatre.

Woodhouse said: “I have always made every effort to make the best possible theatre and Chichester Festival Theatre has a bold, rich history of producing some of the best theatre in the country.”

He joins artistic director Daniel Evans and executive director Rachel Tackley, who said she and Evans were “delighted to have lured Jeremy to the south coast”.

“[We] very much look forward to working with him, Amelia and Georgina on Festival 2018 and beyond.”
