In addition to the new top dog at TLT, the theatre also announced it has strategically restructured its leadership hierarchy so that Duvall will partner with existing Business Director Corinna Chapo to jointly manage the 88-year-old institution.

Duvall a native of Bellevue and comes to Tacoma Little Theatre with more than 30 years in professional theatre and more than 250 productions to his credit. 

He has performed in various capacities with such companies as The Montana Repertory Theatre, Seattle Children’s Theatre, Eastside Theatre Company, Tacoma Actor’s Guild, Evergreen Theatre Company, Studio East, Tacoma Little Theatre, ACT in Seattle, Western Washington University, Western Theatre Summer Stock and American Revue Theatre, where he served as founding artistic director for four years. 

“I am elated to have this opportunity to serve Tacoma’s theatrical community as well as the community at large," Duvall stated.  "In my 10 years of working at TLT, I have truly grown to love Tacoma, our audiences and particularly the enormously talented people who appear on the TLT stage.  To watch them grow and blossom, over and over, is truly a thrill for me! I’m looking forward to what we will all create together in the coming years.” 

Chapo is a native to the Seattle area and has been employed as the theater’s business director for more than a year.  She brings with her ten years of financial planning with local retailer Eddie Bauer and has served as senior marketing manager at local candy manufacturer Brown & Haley. â€" Steve Dunkelberger
