Our Circle is Revolving!


Stephanie Lein Walseth, Our New Co-Artistic Director


After eight years of growth and success, our company circle is revolving, and we are excited to announce two significant changes to our staff structure!

This fall, Stephanie Lein Walseth is stepping into the role of Co-Artistic Director alongside Rick Shiomi.

In her own words:

“I am honored and humbled to be taking on this new mantle at Full Circle. This company has been my artistic home since 2014, and my work with the indefatigable team of Rick and Martha spans more than two decades, so this feels like a very organic and generative next step. I am thrilled to be able to continue to grow this multiracial, multicultural, multigenerational company whose mission of making the world a more racially and socially just place through theater so closely aligns with my own goals. And what a fabulous team of Core Artists, staff, board members, and broader Full Circle family to be in relationship with as we move the work forward! This is not the end, but rather a beautiful revolution of our ever-growing circle.”


Thank you, Martha B. Johnson!

In her own words:

“I’m thrilled and honored that Stephanie is our new Co-Artistic Director. Nowhere could we have found a more talented, experienced, and passionate visionary theater artist to help lead us into the future.”
