Door Shakespeare announces the appointment of Amy Ensign as its new managing director.
Ensign has more than 30 years of experience in theatre, instructional design, retail sales, training and marketing. She graduated from the University of Washington with a BA in drama. After meeting and living on the west coast for a number of years, Ensign and her husband settled in Door County to raise a family. The rich arts community rekindled her interest in theater.
Ensign began her career with Door Shakespeare 11 years ago as a member of the Acting Company. During her six years with the company, Ensign’s roles for Door Shakespeare grew to include choreographer, company manager and education director. At that time, she initiated Shakespeare in the Schools, one of the educational arms of Door Shakespeare. Other Door County acting credits include Third Avenue Playhouse, Northern Sky Theater, Teatro Caravaggio, Theatre M and The Peninsula Players.
“I am thrilled to return to my Door County theater roots,” said Ensign.

The shows are presented on alternate nights, Monday through Friday at 7:30 pm and Saturday at 5 pm in the garden of Björklunden, just south of Baileys Harbor on Highway 57.
