The Board of Directors of the Balboa Performing Arts Theatre Foundation, the nonprofit organization guiding the rebirth of the historic, city-owned Balboa Village Theatre, voted to dissolve the current board membership, except for the newly named Chairman of the Board Dr. Donald Hecht, according to a press release issued by the foundation on Monday. The board also encouraged Dr. Hecht to build a new board and revision the theatre.
"The Board discussed and decided that while its current membership has made great progress toward reopening the theatre, that a new group of planners, thinkers and community support builders would be best able to complete the reopening," said Dr. Hecht in a statement. "I want to acknowledge the substantial contributions of the former board members in bringing this project to its current status, and I applaud the Board's selfless decision. I will work to build a board and theatre that will honor their work."
Hecht said he would meet with each former board member to determine if there is a role they would like to play in reopening this theatre.
According to the press release, Dr. Hecht will also lead a redesign of the theatre. Plans for the redesign will begin to be unveiled in early 2014. The theatre's reopening is targeted for mid-2015. Dr. Hecht will begin recruiting new board members in mid-December.
The board appointed Dr. Hecht chairman of the board last month. Hecht and his wife Sue live on Balboa Peninsula. In 1978, Hecht founded California Southern University, where he is President Emeritus. He also sits on the boards of Pacific Symphony and Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
"One of the conditions set forth by the City for the foundation to qualify for the City's challenge loan was to build and develop the foundation's Board of Directors," stated Councilman Mike Henn in the press release. Henn, whose district includes the Balboa Village Theatre, added that "I am confident Dr. Hecht will build a strong board which will bring the theatre's vision into reality and most importantly secure the community's support of the theatre."
