“I grew up in a theater-going family,” said Corinne Woods, the new managing director at Grandstreet Theatre, of how she got hooked on theater.

On Dec. 1, she took over her new role from Kal Poole, who resigned in July after serving in the position for 10 years. He is now the director of engagement at Helena Area Habitat for Humanity.

Woods remembers that as a child of 8 or 9, she was enthralled with a “Fiddler on the Roof” production she saw at the Music Hall with her parents in Kansas City, Missouri.

“I did theater as a kid. I really loved to sing.”

Her first theater role was Polka Dancer No. 2.

For something totally different and a new adventure, her family moved to Kwajalein atoll in the Marshall Islands when she was 15, where she was active in theater.
