MADISON (WKOW) -- American Players Theatre will begin its 35th season next month, but the Spring Green theater is also under new leadership.

Brenda DeVita was named APT's artistic director in January, but is still in transition to completely take over. This year marks DeVita's 20th season with APT. She has played a number of different roles in that time, including company manager, casting director, artistic administrator and associate artistic director.

In addition to her role as artistic director, DeVita is also directing "The Year of Magical Thinking" this season.

American Players Theatre was founded in 1979, and continues to be one of the most popular outdoor classical theaters in the nation.

APT's 2014 season begins June 7. If you would like to know more about APT, click here.

DeVita joined us on 27 News at 5 on Friday.
