Old Globe Names Timothy Shields Managing Director

The Old Globe has tapped Timothy J. Shields as its new managing director.

Shields, who has been managing director of McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton, N.J., since 2009, is scheduled to start at the professional theatre company in Balboa Park in October.

Shields also served for a decade as managing director at Milwaukee Repertory Theater; for six years as managing director at Geva Theatre Center in Rochester, N.Y.; and in administrative positions at Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis and Denver Center Theatre Company.

Shields is immediate past president of the League of Resident Theatres, the country’s largest professional theatre association. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Penn., his hometown.

“Tim Shields is one of the most accomplished executives in the American not-for-profit theatre movement, and his arrival at the Old Globe heralds a new period of growth and achievement here,” said Barry Edelstein, the Old Globe’s artistic director. “Tim’s leadership has been transformational at each wonderful company he’s run, and his contributions at the national level have been equally great. He is a thoughtful, distinguished, and kind man whose positivity and optimism will impact not only the Globe, but also our city’s entire arts community.”
