Indian Lake Theater Hires New Executive Director
The Indian Lake Theater named Mary Alice O’Connor as Executive Director of the nonprofit that seeks to entertain, engage & enrich the economic and cultural life of the Central Adirondacks through movies, family events, concerts, and special events. It is the only theater to feature a movie screen and stage in Hamilton County.
Prior to joining the team at the Indian Lake Theater, O’Connor served as an Outreach Representative at the Adirondack Experience in Blue Mountain Lake and the Director of Communications & Events at Cristo Rey Boston High School in Dorchester, MA.
She succeeds the former Executive Director Susan Montgomery Corey, who sadly passed away in January of 2023 after a long and tough battle against cancer.
“All of us at the Indian Lake Theater see an opportunity to expand our movie and event offerings and are thrilled to have Mary Alice onboard for this next stage of growth,” Board President Terry DeArmas shared. “I’m excited about this next step for the theater under her leadership.”
O’Connor’s hiring comes as the theater seeks to build its programming and funding bases following COVID. She says, “I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the Indian Lake Theater—a place I visited often as child with my grandparents. I look forward to being a part of the effort to bring the theater to the next level, working closely with our many partners to make a positive impact in Indian Lake and the surrounding communities.”
