On Wednesday, March 24, SIU PRSSA welcomed Megan Ketcherside and Dylan K. Stanley together as guest speakers. The pair focused on managing publicity for theatrical venues–work they’re quite familiar with.
Ketcherside is the Publicity Manager for the The Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis. The theatre is famous for bringing in touring productions of hit Broadway shows. Due to being an indoor venue during COVID-19, much of their programming such as Frozen, The Prom, and Pretty Woman: The Musical have been postponed.
Stanley is the Public Relations Manager and Copywriting Coordinator for The Muny. For over 100 years The Muny has been a St. Louis institution. Located in Forest Park, this outdoor theatre regularly stages productions of classic productions such as Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Mary Poppins, and The Sound of Music.
