Herb Stratford, exec director of the Fox Tucson Theatre Foundation, is stepping down next month. Stratford, who led the charge to rehab the historic movie palace, sent out an e-mail on Monday, March 24, that reads in part:
Hello everyone -
I am sorry for the mass email, but I wanted to share a change with you. As
of April 25th I will no longer be at the Fox Tucson Theatre Foundation.
After nearly 10 years of work on the Fox project it is now time to move on
to other opportunities. A public announcement will be made Thursday or
Friday but as you are all friends I wanted you to know first of my plans.
I plan on staying in Tucson and finding other creative activities to keep
me busy for years to come.
