Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, the D.C.-based company that prides itself on developing, producing and making theater that stimulates transformative experiences, has welcomed two new supporters of theater to its board of directors.

Colin Bills, a lighting and set designer, and Clarence Fluker, a member of the theatre’s Ambassador Program, both have an active history at the theater company, said board President Linette Hwu.

“I’m so thrilled to welcome both Colin and Clarence to our board of directors,” Hwu said in a press release announcing the appointments. “Both of them have yearslong track records with Woolly — Colin as a company member and Clarence as an ambassador. I look forward to their invaluable insights as Woolly continues to ride the roller coaster of the current moment.”

Bills and Fluker’s fellow board members include Hwu, President-elect Chris Babb, Immediate Past President Scott Schreiber, First Vice President Michael Fitzpatrick, Vice President Nancy Hartsock, Vice President Julie Rios, Treasurer Stacy Reed and Secretary Barbara Strack, among others.

“Woolly is so fortunate to have a committed, smart, and enthusiastic Board of Directors — especially at a time when there is such uncertainty in the world and in the theatre field,” said Managing Director Emika Abe. “Welcoming Colin and Clarence to this critical body is particularly exciting for us because of our determination to ensure that the work of the Board includes and reflects the perspectives of our artists, community leaders and other bright D.C. talent.”
