Hanna Streeter has been appointed executive director of the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond.

She replaces Sarah Nicholson, who leaves the organisation in March after four years in the post.

Streeter joins from Paines Plough, where she has worked for nine years and is senior producer.

She will work alongside artistic director Paul Miller, who said: “The Orange Tree is lucky indeed that Hanna will join us in 2019. Her spirit, tremendous acumen and the values we share make her the perfect person to take the Orange Tree forward on the next stage of our journey.”

At Paines Plough, Streeter has previously worked with the Orange Tree this year on a season of three plays, which were co-produced by the two companies with Theatr Clwyd.

Streeter said: “I’m overjoyed to be joining Paul and the fantastic team at the Orange Tree. What Paul and Sarah have achieved over the last four years and their evidence of growing new audiences through bold programming is truly galvanising.”

She added: “Having also been one of the children inspired by their Shakespeare in schools project in the early 90s, it’s a real privilege to be joining the theatre where it all started for me. I can’t wait to see what’s next for this beautiful theatre in-the-round.”
