The NCTC Staff are often working in the field. The best way to contact a staff member is via email.

Angie Hays (she/her) is passionate about developing our next generation of theatrical artists and audiences. Her advocacy work brings critical support to professional and community theatres and helps elected officials understand the important role the arts play in our communities. One of Angie’s favorite NCTC programs is Theatre Admin Intensive, where she introduces college students and emerging leaders to the arts management field. She also finds great joy in the coaching work she does with nonprofit theatre boards, helping dedicated volunteers better serve the organizations they love. Angie has been the leader of NCTC since 2007. In this time, she has also served as an adjunct professor of Arts Administration at Greensboro College and Elon University, and as a guest lecturer at several NC colleges.

In her free time, Angie enjoys points travel, being the unofficial Disney trip planner for her friends, and spoiling her cats. 


Tiffany Albright, Director of Communications and Operations

Tiffany Albright (she/her) is a dedicated nonprofit administrator and practicing artist. In the past decade, she’s worked with organizations like National AMBUCS, Triad Stage, Communities in Schools, WorldTeach, and Film at Lincoln Center in roles from communications to development to artist services. Tiffany joined NCTC as the Marketing Manager in 2019, and the professional and personal growth she’s experienced as part of the organization have been a great pleasure. She holds a Master of Public Affairs from UNC Greensboro and a B.A. in Film Studies from UNC Wilmington. Her primary professional goal is expanding access to the arts and finding ways to more closely align nonprofit organizations with the needs of their communities. One of Tiffany’s favorite NCTC programs is the Producing Gathering, where theatre professionals from across the state come together to share their experiences and celebrate their accomplishments. She also loves visiting member organizations and seeing their work, as a reminder of all the passion and energy people devote to theatre and why NCTC works so hard to support them! Tiffany is an award-winning film director, producer, and screenwriter, and the founder of Queer Fear Film Festival and Lunar Kitchen Films. She lives in Greensboro with an active teenager and two rescue dogs. When she’s not seeing a show or on set, she can usually be found curled up with a book, planning an international adventure, or hanging out on a rock wall.
