Everyone at the RSC plays a part in creating the world you see on stage.

Our Board is chaired by Shriti Vadera and comprises around 15 people, all chosen for their skills and experience. These include our Co-Artistic Directors Daniel Evans and Tamara Harvey, and Interim Co-Executive Directors Sandeep Mahal and Vicky Cheetham, who work closely with our senior management team in leading and steering the company. Andrew Leveson takes up the role of Executive Director at the end of April 2024. Andrew joins the company from the Bridge Theatre (London Theatre Company). 

Board and Governors

Apart from Daniel and Tamara, our Board members are drawn from a wide group of Governors - all of whom champion our aims and act as our advocates. They meet at least once a year during our AGM, which is chaired by our President – the former Prince of Wales. Our Patron was Queen Elizabeth II until her death in September 2022.

Associate Artists

The Artistic Director also invites actors, directors, writers and designers who have made a serious commitment and an outstanding contribution to the life and reputation of the RSC to become Associate Artists and Honorary Associate Artists. The title is offered as a thank you and acknowledgement of achievement. The Associates are not part of the formal governance structure and receive no payment for their role, but are invited to have an involvement in shaping the future artistic life of the company.

Senior Leadership Team and Steering Group

Tamara Harvey and Daniel Evans as Co-Artistic Directors and Interim Co-Executive Directors Sandeep Mahal and Vicky Cheetham are supported by a group of senior managers who make up the Senior Leadership Team and are responsible for developing and implementing our Strategic Plan. They work alongside our Artistic Planning team who develop our artistic programme. A much wider group of department heads meet regularly as the Steering Group, managing our day to day operations and debating the key issues affecting the life of the company.
