PROVIDENCE – Trinity Repertory Company will rename its artistic director position “The Richard L. Bready Artistic Director” through June 2015 to celebrate a $250,000 gift from former Nortek CEO Richard L. Bready to support its Theater for Every Generation Campaign.

“I am thrilled and honored that Rick has invested in our work,” said Curt Columbus, Trinity Rep artistic director, in a statement. “Rick’s enthusiasm shows us that our community values our last 50 years of great theater, as well as the theater we’ll make in the next 50 years.”

Bready also has pledged a 2-to-1 match for every new dollar given to Trinity Rep in support of the $18 million Theater for Every Generation Campaign up to $125,000 through Dec. 31.

“In times like these, it’s invaluable for those of us who can to re-affirm our commitment to the arts,” Bready said. “I’ve been involved with Trinity Rep on many levels over the years, and I want to do my part to make sure it’s around for years to come.”

Trinity Rep launched the Theater for Every Generation Campaign in 2010 to preserve the company’s unique vision and values for future audiences.
