Tracy McCoy, who has worked for both the Athens Theatre and the Sands Theater Center in DeLand, has been given the job of running the 2-year-old Gateway Center for the Arts in DeBary. She takes over from Sandra Wilson, the artist who persuaded the town to build the Gateway Center as a place for residents to enjoy the arts.
McCoy, who has a BFA in theater, began working at the center in November and will be the chief administrator, overseeing a small staff and a lot of volunteers.She has been an actor, a producer and an administrator for a variety of theater companies for the past 20 years. According to an article in the Daytona Beach News-Journal, she plans to produce more theater at Gateway and offer arts classes year-round.
Congratulations to Tracy!
