A spokesperson for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust has confirmed Scott Shiller‘s departure, stating, “Due to a consolidation and strategic realignment of theater operations management and programming at Trust venues, the position of Senior Vice President of Artistic Planning and Theater Venues held by Scott Shiller has been eliminated.
During his 6+ year tenure, Scott Shiller has helped the Cultural Trust navigate challenging times during the pandemic and launched a successful new venue in Liberty Magic on Liberty. He also played a key role in transitioning film at the Harris Theater into the Trust’s programming portfolio. The Trust is grateful to Scott for his dedication and creativity.”
As onStage Pittsburgh previously reported, Shiller was involved with the rennovations and upgrades to the Cultural Trust’s Greer Cabaret Theater scheduled to reopen later this month. “If we’ve done our job right, we’ve primed the audience’s mind to forget the troubles of their day and be in the moment,” said Shiller. “So, when the house lights go down, and the stage lights go up, the audience is ready to go on the artistic journey with the storytellers on the stage.”
Before joining the Cultural Trust, Shiller was briefly the Chief Executive Officer at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and prior to DCPA served as Executive Vice President at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County.
