Tyler Olsen-Highness, Executive Director Pronouns: He/Him/His
Tyler Olsen-Highness is a theater artist, producer, director, administrator, and teacher who knows how to get things done, connect people, and lead adventures. An outgoing leader, he is the founder of the non-profit Dangerous Productions and has produced over 70 artistic and community inspired projects in the past seven years. He is especially proud of the development of HOPE NEWS, a youth-created positive news broadcast out of Frogtown, featuring youth interviews of people doing amazing work in our community. He has produced work of, by, and for the community of Frogtown for six years. Tyler served the Victoria Theater project for 7 years as a project manager, events producer, advisory board member, board chair and member of the executive, building, and fundraising committees before becoming executive director in 2019. He believes the organization has the chance to build the arts center of the future---a center for the neighborhood to share, celebrate, and question. When he isn’t creating art or leading change, Tyler enjoys outdoor adventures, music, theater, and time with his wife Amy, dog Marigold, and cat Kitty.
