Brian Schipper has been selected to assume a new role within Mighty Corson Art Players thanks to the generous support of the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation, whose grant provided seed money to create this position. 
“We are all appreciative of the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation and the potential they saw in our organization,” said MCAP treasurer Chase Phillips. “This is a remarkable phase in our growth and a recognition of something we have been working toward for some time now. I’m excited for the future of MCAP, and this is just one more step in the direction of becoming a strong, creative institution in our community.”
Currently serving as president of the board of directors, Schipper is no stranger to MCAP. He is currently directing his 10th show there, Almost, Maine, which opens Oct. 11. 
“I couldn’t be more humbled,” Schipper said. “Our commitment to providing exceptional, accessible, theatre for people of all experience levels has created a wonderful atmosphere and grown our community theater to the point of needing this role to meet the day to day needs of our actors, patrons and supporters. I’m excited to be able to continue to serve MCAP’s mission in a new way.”
