Note from Long Wharf Theatre

Charles Kingsley, a partner at the New Haven law firm Wiggin and Dana, has been elected as the Chair of Long Wharf Theatre’s Board of Trustees, succeeding Mary Pepe, who served two terms in the position. He began his term on July 1.

Kingsley has been a member of the Board for twenty years, joining in 1991, recently serving as a member of the board’s Executive Committee. He has been a subscriber since 1965, having been in the audience of the theatre’s inaugural production of The Crucible by Arthur Miller.

“The image of New Haven is largely a cultural one … when you think of that wonderful culture, Long Wharf Theatre is one of the first things you think of, and with good reason,” Kingsley said.

Kingsley is also currently president of the Arts Council of Greater New Haven, and a trustee of the Florence Academy of Fine Arts. Kingsley formerly served as president of the New Haven Symphony Orchestra, the New Haven Museum and Historical Society, the United States Squash Racquets Association and the South Central Connecticut Regional Mental Health Planning Council. He also served as a director of the Connecticut Trails Council of Girl Scouts, the Connecticut Audubon Society, the Connecticut Trust for Historical Preservation, and High Hopes Therapeutic Riding, Inc. He’s also been inducted into the College Squash Hall of Fame.
