Cincinnati Landmark Productions Adds Managing Director

CLP_Rodger Pille2Cincinnati Landmark Productions announced today the promotion of Rodger Pille to the role of Managing Director.

Pille previously served as Communications/Development Manager for CLP, one of the region’s fastest growing arts organizations, since 2012.

Landmark is the owner/operator of the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts and the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater. It merged with Madcap Puppets in 2017 and oversaw the construction and opening of the new Madcap Education Center in Westwood. In addition, CLP is the producer of the Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre (CYPT), the region’s long-running, national award-winning teen summer theater program.

Pille served as Project Manager for those two recent capital projects: the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater and the Madcap Education Center.

As Managing Director, Pille will now oversee operations and staff of CLP’s three venues as well as fundraising, strategic planning, marketing, public relations and development for the organization.

“When CLP was ready to make the next step in its evolution, I hired Rodger,” said Tim Perrino, founder and Artistic Director of CLP. “His ability to manage projects and build a collaborative team made both the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater and the Madcap Education Center developments a reality. As Managing Director, he’ll see to the success of all CLP’s exciting venues and programming.”

Before coming to CLP, he worked in the marketing communications departments of Newport Aquarium (2008-11) and Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal (1997-2008), managing public relations and social media initiatives.

He’s also well acquainted with the theater. Pille began his relationship with CLP in 1990 as a teen participant in CYPT. In college and for many years after, he performed on the Showboat Majestic stage for CLP, and later at the Covedale and Incline venues.

Pille is a 1995 graduate of the E. W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University. He and his wife Krista reside in Western Hills with their son Charlie.

DRIVING MISS DAISY By Alfred Uhry
September 5 – 29, 2019

The Deep South, 1948 – just prior to the civil rights movement… Having demolished another car, Daisy Werthan, a rich, sharp-tongued widow of seventy-two, is informed by her son that she must now rely on a chauffeur. The son hires a thoughtful black man, Hoke, whom Miss Daisy immediately regards with disdain. Over the next twenty-five years, the two grow close and more dependent on each other. Steadily the dignified Hoke breaks down the stern defenses of the old lady. She teaches him to read and write, and eventually invites him to join her at a banquet in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. At the end, Hoke has a final visit with Miss Daisy, now in a nursing home, where it is movingly clear that they have both have more in common than they ever believed possible—and that the times would ever allow them to publicly admit. Winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize, this is a great American play with heart, humor and humanity. Greg Procaccino, Director; Angelica Ortiz, Stage Manager

Book: Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice; Music and Lyrics: Andrew Lippa

It’s creepy and it’s kooky!! It’s a hilarious musical! It’s every father’s nightmare! Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And worse, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia! Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents. All the lovable characters (and the musical theme) from the classic TV show are here, along with great songs like, ““When You’re an Addams”, “Where Did We Go Wrong?”, “Just Around the Corner”, “Live Before We Die” and “Tango de Amor”!

September 26 – October 13, 2019

It’s the end of the big, bad 80’s and the party has been raging hard. Aqua Net, Lycra, lace, and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strip’s last venues – a place where sexy Stacee Jaxx reigns and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner) Drew longs to take the stage while he longs for small-town girl Sherri. But the decade’s rock and roll fairy-tale is about to end. Can Drew, Sherri, and the gang save the 80’s? With monster hits songs like, “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”, “Wanted Dead or Alive” and “Don’t Stop Believing”, ROCK of AGES lets the party go on forever! Nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical. Doug Berlon, Director; Greg Dastillung Music Director; Jules Shumate Choreographer; Steven Ducker, Stage Manager
