About The Majestic
Majestic Theatre Management is a non-profit company contracted to oversee operations, programs and fiscal health at The Majestic Theatre, a City owned community arts center in downtown Corvallis, OR. Our mission is to provide access, excellence and education to benefit the public and the greater arts community.
In August 2013 The Majestic Theatre in Corvallis, Oregon turned 100 years old. The venerable vaudeville house has seen many incarnations over the decades. The organization is enjoying a new surge of energy and output with a new staff, new strategic focus, new model and new programs. All are focused on establishing The Majestic as the flagship cultural space for the performing and contemporary arts in downtown Corvallis, serving the City and surrounding counties.
The Majestic’s historic state-of-the-art theater venue, classrooms and conference spaces are available for daily and weekly rental by performing arts companies, concert promoters, fund raisers, business meeting planners, weddings, and others for a variety of special presentations both public and private.
After an extensive national search and selection process, The Majestic Theater is proud to announce the selection of Tinamarie Ivey as our new Executive Director. With a creative and energetic vision, she is already actively launching the next century of making the Majestic a hub of cultural activity—fulfilling our mission to provide access, excellence and education in the performing arts to our valley community.
“We are very pleased to announce this appointment,” said Laurie Zink, Majestic Theatre Management President. “Tinamarie brings both local and world-class experience to her leadership of operations and artistic vision at the Majestic. She has a deep sense of commitment to diversity in the arts, including community theatre, regional talent, and exciting leading edge performance and events.”
“I look forward to serving and partnering with the area’s nonprofit organizations and local artists.” Tinamarie stated, “When it comes to artistic expression I believe strongly in collaborative work, challenging projects and access for all – this is my passion. The Majestic is a community access space for a diverse, multitude of local and professional artists while providing performance and workshop space for music, dance, theater, and film. This venue will be a collaborative space where the amateur and professional meet, learn from each other and develop relationships and partnerships that are nurtured through mutual respect. Our space may be historic, but the artists we present and the community partnerships established strive to remain relevant to our changing world and diverse community.”
“It is particularly exciting that Tinamarie is devoted to the education component of our mission,” said board member Kate Hickok Feldman. “She has a breadth of experience and a refreshing breath of originality in this sector.”
Tinamarie’s resume includes over 20 years of collective arts management experience with executive planning, administration, communications, marketing, reporting to and serving on non-profit boards–as well as a rich performance history.
Most recently, Tinamarie has served as guest director for OSU and has taught theater arts locally for both OSU and LBCC. Prior to arriving in the Corvallis area four years ago, she worked with artists and city organizations developing and implementing educational and leadership programs, spearheading arts-building grant projects, and comprehensive fundraising. She co-founded a small performing arts organization, Sanctuary Stage, whose mission is to “give a voice to the voiceless”, with a focus on community engaged theater-making. She also served as adjunct faculty at Humboldt State University and College of the Redwoods.
