GOSHEN – The Orange County Arts Council announces its new executive director, Todd Hulet., who brings with him over two decades of experience in the arts, education and entertainment fields. He most recently led the Events and Entertainment department through the opening of LEGOLAND New York Resort in Goshen.
Hulet is a member of the Dramatists Guild and serves on the national board of TYA/USA, the leading national organization for the professional field of theater for children and families. He is a champion for young artists and has served as an Arts educator for over 20 years. His passion for theater and experience creation comes from a deep appreciation for the wide spectrum of arts mediums and their ability to come together to create powerful moments. As a public speaker and professional development facilitator, he focuses on the intersection of arts principles and how we can fine tune our work through cross-medium study.
Hulet replaces Sarah McKay, who served as OCAC’s executive director from 2018 until August 2022.
“I am thrilled to be joining the Orange County Arts Council and look forward to the opportunity to serve this community,” said Hulet. “Sarah McKay has done an incredible job at leading the Council and I want to thank her for her years of service. The Council is on a path to do so much good in our community thanks to her hard work and dedication. We look forward to continuing this work as we expand and develop the Arts in Orange County.”
Hulet has played nearly every cabaret venue in NYC, written musicals that toured the country, guided multiple local non-profit efforts for Arts Advocacy, served as developmental consultant for arts organizations in six states, designed and executed large-scale corporate events.
He resides in the Town of Newburgh with his photographer and ceramicist husband and their two dogs.
OCAC eagerly looks forward to working with Todd Hulet as he unfolds his vision for the future of the arts in Orange County.
