Richard Thomas, who is currently back on Broadway in the Manhattan Theatre Club's production of An Enemy of the People, has been named as Honorary Chair of National Corporate Theatre Fund.

In his new role, the actor will promote Impact Creativity -- a $5 million fundraising initiative for national theatre education -- as well as NCTF's mission of sustaining America's finest not-for-profit theatres, through partnerships with corporate America. Thomas' image can currently be seen on billboards and bus shelters as well as in taxicabs, both in New York and throughout the country, as part of the Impact Creativity campaign.

"I am thrilled to join as Honorary Chair at this critically important time for theatre and for arts education which has faced some of the worst cuts in years and needs our focus and attention," says Thomas in a statement.
