The Theatre Council of Tasmania (TCT), which exists to support the recognition and development of Tasmanian theatre and the success of its practitioners, has welcomed Ross Marsden as its president. 

Originally from Queensland, Marsden now lives in Launceston, where he is involved in the community musical and theatre scene as a performer, director and long-term member of the Encore board. Marsden also works as a producer with ABC Radio and recently stood for local elections. The TCT selection panel believes he will take a consultative approach to leading the TCT and was impressed with his enthusiasm and his knowledge of the state of theatre throughout Tasmania.
