After 18 years of incredible service, tireless dedication and unwavering devotion, David Armstrong is stepping down as the Executive Producer and Artistic Director of The 5th Avenue Theatre. The 5th is proud to honor David's artistic legacy and commitment to the highest artistic standards through the establishment of the David Armstrong Fund for Excellence.
This fund will enable The 5th to continue David's tradition of nurturing, cultivating and developing a vibrant artistic community in Seattle that draws national attention and renown.
Thanks to the generosity of our outgoing and incoming Board Chairs, the first $200,000 in gifts to the Fund will be matched dollar for dollar!
We thank David for making The 5th a national leader in the creation of musical theater. Under his leadership, The 5th produced world premieres of 19 new musicals—nine of which went on to Broadway. And he tirelessly championed the incredible talent pool in Seattle, helping to define the city as a place where performers could afford to live and work. Help us continue David's work with a gift today.
