Executive Artistic Director

A native of San Antonio, Texas, George Green has called the Inland Northwest home since 1996. He has been passionate about theatre since his childhood. From 1990 to 1996, he served as the Artistic Director for the Godbold Cultural Center’s resident theatre company in Lubbock, Texas. Recently, George was the Director of Development at Spokane Civic Theatre. Amid his professional theatre career, he spent his efforts honing his skills in business and communications. He served as the Program Manager for KAYO Broadcasting in Tacoma and later spent six years as the Marketing Director at Inland Publications. In addition to his administrative skills, he is an accomplished actor. In 2006, he was nominated for the Best Actor Critic’s Choice Award for his interpretation of George in Spokane Interplayers’ production of Of Mice and Men. Later, in 2009, George earned that accolade for his work as R.P. McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Not only has he been accredited locally, he has achieved national recognition as well. In 2007, George was awarded the AACT National Best Supporting Actor Award for his portrayal of Lee Harvey Oswald in Assassins. George is enthused to lead Lake City Playhouse and is appreciative of the community’s support of this historic organization.


Hannah Paton - email

Managing Director

Hannah Paton is thrilled to be a part the Lake City Playhouse staff. A long-time artist and performer,  Hannah has always been dedicated to creating a life in the theater. She studied at the University of Montana and graduated with a BFA in Acting in 2010. While studying in Missoula, she worked with the Montana Actor's Theatre for several years, most notably writing for and performing in their monthly cabarets. In 2011, she also began stage managing for the successful touring vaudeville troupe, The Cigarette Girls Burlesque. She moved to Coeur D'Alene in 2011, and immediately found a home in the thriving Inland Northwest theater community. Before accepting her current position, she spent many hours at the Playhouse on stage and off, acting, stage managing, and volunteering. You may have seen her as Stella in A Streetcar Named Desire (2011) or Bella in Lost In Yonkers (2012).  She is proud to call such a dynamic and challenging theater home, and looks forward to being a part the upcoming work of the Lake City Playhouse.
