In related news, it has been announced that Dominic Missimi has been appointed as executive director of the society. Missimi has worked with the Sarah Siddons Society for the past 20 years, supplying entertainment for the annual gala celebrations. He is a Professor Emeritus at Northwestern University, is founder of the school's well-known Music Theatre Program and Executive Director of the American Music Theatre Project, an organization dedicated to the creation of new music theater.

The Society is celebrating its 60th Anniversary year, having given its first Sarah Siddons Actress of the Year to Helen Hayes in 1952.
