"Starting and leading this company has been a life-changing experience for me," Preisser said in a statement. "It's been a real privilege to be a part of CTH, and to have had the chance to work with the great artists and audience that have contributed to our success. It's the best of what a life in the theatre has to offer."
"I am forever grateful to the dedicated artists, audiences, funders and community partners that have brought their creativity and passion in support of the first eleven seasons of the Classical Theatre of Harlem," McElroen added. "After eleven truly remarkable years it is time to build on the experiences I've shared in at CTH and create something new."
