Joseph Kesselring (Playwright) Joseph Otto Kesselring was born in New York City on June 21, 1902. His career was always linked in some way to the theatre. His early years were spent as a singer (boy soprano and adult tenor), and at the age of twenty, he began teaching music and directing amateur theatre productions at Bethel College in Newton, Kansas. At twenty-three, he left academia to pursue acting, writing short stories, and producing vaudeville plays. He acted professionally in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes at the age of twenty-four and, at thirty-one, one year after his marriage to Charlotte Elsheimer, he devoted himself to writing, continuing to pen short stories and initiating his career as a playwright. Between 1933 and his death in 1967, he authored twelve plays—mostly light comedies. His first play to be produced, Aggie Appleby, Maker of Men, premiered in 1933, and four later plays were produced on Broadway: There’s Wisdom in Women (1935), Arsenic and Old Lace (1941), Four Twelves are 48 (1951), and Mother of That Wisdom (1963). Mr. Kesselring died on November 5, 1967, at the age of sixty-five.

Aaron A. Young (Managing Director) Aaron joined the Fulton team in 2003. After several years in shopping center marketing, Aaron decided to devote his career to furthering the careers of artists in order to break the cycle of belief that the arts are a nice hobby but not a worthwhile profession. For six seasons, he directed the marketing and management of the Sundance Film Festival and Sundance Theatre, both programs of Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute. Aaron has also served as general manager for the Missouri Repertory Theatre and marketing and corporate development manager for Kansas City’s historic Folly Theatre. A magna cum laude graduate of Brigham Young University and formerly a professional actor, singer, and pianist, Aaron now spends his free time enjoying the pursuits of his wife and daughters, serving at church, and occasionally knitting a new pair of socks. He is very pleased that the Fulton is able to provide professional wages and benefits to more than 250 artists and arts administrators every year.
