Anthony Conte, the long-time president of Shea's Performing Arts Center, will retire at the end of the current theater season.
Conte has been at the helm of Shea's for the past 15 years; he volunteered at the theater for 30 years prior to that.
Conte is 70 now and he says it's time for new blood to move in. Conte oversaw the $24 million renovation of the historic theater, which took 18 years.
There is no word yet on a possible replacement.
