Van Kleeck travels down Katy Trail to Theatre Three By Shari Goldstein Stern

While meandering down the Katy Trail after it converges with White Rock Trail, Marty Van Kleeck couldn’t be more excited about her journey. The Dallas theater veteran took on a new role in January as managing director for Theatre Three (T3) after seven years of managing the Bath House Cultural Center (Bath House). “I feel it is such a privilege to be a part of such an established and respected arts institution here in Dallas,” she said about her new post. According to T3’s founder and executive producer, Jac Alder, “Van Kleeck’s leadership grew the Bath House’s programming and attendance

to one of our most important venues for extraordinary theatre and exceptional visual arts.” “The Theatre Three Board agreed that Marty coming would accomplish several organizational goals, one of which is to have a new answer about leadership succession in case I should retire or, as it is delicately put, ‘get hit by a bus,’” Alder quipped. While managing the Bath House, Van Kleeck’s achievements included directing and broadening public awareness through marketing communications programs, while writing grant applications, managing the budget and funding and representing the Bath House with the City Council and nonprofit groups.

Alder added, “Marty’s in-depth experience as a producer, organizational manager and entrepreneur also satisfies Theatre Three’s appetite for expanded managerial responsibilities for someone already super-familiar with theatre artists in North Texas and with systems of arts support, both governmental and private.” Van Kleeck said that one reason she’s most excited about her new position is that since coming to Dallas in the 1980s, she always wanted to work there. “Of all the theaters here, I’d love to be at Theatre Three,” she said. She got her wish, and Van Kleeck’s first directing project was last month’s “Greater Tuna.” She is currently directing and

Cleveland, Bradley Campbell, Gene Raye Price and the cast of “Shear Madness” at Theatre Too and the show’s a must see.

Price and Van Kleeck first worked together at the Granbury Opera House and continue at both T3 and the Bath House.

Van Kleeck is continuing to direct the Bath House’s One Thirty Matinee Series, which she created. The series doubled the center’s capacity from its opening curtain. The artist lived part of her childhood as an Army brat stationed in Belgium, until her father was transferred to Texas. She earned a BFA from TCU and then an MFA from the University of Oklahoma. After graduation, she auditioned for Granbury Opera House’s first summer company, which was the beginning of a 30-year relationship with that theater. Over those years, she worked as an actor, business manager, costume designer and
