Samantha Mitchell (General Manager)
Samantha previously served as the Casting Director & Company Manager. She has been with Windy City Playhouse since the fall of 2018, where she directly supported the expansion to the South Loop ancillary venue, and was critical in the growth of the Playhouse’s production department. During her tenure, she cast four rotating ensembles of SOUTHERN GOTHIC in its South Loop run and four productions at the flagship location; the most recent, THE BOYS IN THE BAND, recently won the 2020 Joseph Jefferson Award for Best Ensemble. She also served as the primary Actors Equity liaison, steering the theater through two separate contract negotiations with the opening of both South loop performance spaces. Samantha graduated with a BFA in Music Theatre from the Hartt School in Hartford, CT and made her National Tour debut with FIDDLER ON THE ROOF before moving to Chicago.
