Paul Allan, the Theatrical Producer at the Performing Arts Center of Suffolk County, has been appointed to Suffolk County’s Citizens Advisory Board for the Arts (CAB).
CAB reviews and recommends policy for Suffolk, evaluates funding applications, attends various county arts events, helps develop programs to promote and enhance the arts and reports its findings to the county legislature.
“My family started the Gateway Playhouse in the early ’50s. Throughout my life, I have been surrounded by the arts and surrounded by theater,” said Allan. “Since 1980, I have served as Gateway’s producer, and my duties have contributed to my awareness of and contact with arts organizations in our county, across many disciplines. I feel that I can make a positive contribution to this board.”
Suffolk County Legislator Kate Browning (WF-Shirley) nominated Allan, a resident of Bellport Village, to represent the 3rd Legislative District. “I want to thank Paul Allan for representing the 3rd Legislative District on the Citizens Advisory Board for the Arts,” Leg. Browning said. “…Paul’s expertise with theater for over 30 years will be a tremendous asset to the board.”
