Onboarding Podcast – Nao Tsurumaki Takes the Stage with Children’s Theatreby Matt Olin and Andy Goh on February 25, 2021
Children’s Theatre of Charlotte (CTC) has long been revered by Charlotteans, but especially head Biscuit-baker Matt Olin. Having spent many of his formative years working with CTC, Olin credits the organization for making a profound impact on him and his creative work today.
To start the year, CTC hired Nao Tsurumaki to take the stage as its new managing director. Tsurumaki arrived in Charlotte after spending many years working in the performing arts in Washington D.C., New York and — most recently — the Winter Garden Theatre in Orlando.
In today’s “Onboarding” segment of the Biscuit CLT podcast, Olin speaks to Tsurumaki about what’s on his mind as the curtain opens on his new job. They discuss what brought Tsurumaki to the Queen City, what he hopes to accomplish in the years ahead and their shared passion for youth-oriented theater.
