Now in its second season after former Pier One artistic director Lance Petersen passed the torch to current artistic director Jennifer Norton, the little red theater on the Homer Spit has begun to feel its stride with a new generation of actors, directors and techies.
Petersen and wife Barbara Petersen for decades had run Pier One, now in its 45th season. In 2016, Norton came on as artistic director, shadowing Lance Petersen, and in 2017 ran the season on her own.
Pier One has a new phone number, a downtown Pioneer Avenue office above the Homer Bookstore, new staff and new board members.
“We’re starting to make sense of it all,” Norton said in a phone interview on Tuesday. “There’s just a lot going on keeping up with the programming, and attempting to keep ourselves organized is a challenge, but we’re making it happen.”
