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.

A rollicking hootenanny of a musical based on the true story of a legendary Texas brothel, which operated from the 1840s to 1973. Protected by a friendly sheriff and frequented by politicians, football teams, and others, the “Chicken Ranch” thrived in the small town of Gilbert, Texas. Girls came from all over to work at the ranch and make a little extra cash. However, a crusading do-gooder Houston radio commentator and his conservative audience expose the Chicken Ranch, forcing it to shut its doors forever.
