In addition he is counsel to the prestigious law firm of Mudge, Rose, Guthrie and Alexander, acts as a business consultant for overseas financial organizations, is involved in oil and gas exploration, and has recently founded a distributorship for fine wines.  He began his theatre career while a student at Colby College, Waterville, Me.  During the summers he worked at a theatre in Camden, Me., rising from apprentice to managing director.  Thereafter he produced a number of plays on Broadway, including a revival of Noel Coward's Fallen Angels, Hotel Paradiso, with Bert Lahr, Albert Camus' Caligula, and several road companies of Auntie Mame.

Among the plays he has produced are The Grey-Eyed People, His and Hers, starring Celeste Holm and Robert Preston, Portrait of a Queen and The Lincoln Mask.  As founder and first Managing Director of the beautifully restored Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam, Conn., Mr. Selden was involved in and responsible for more than 20 productions, musical and otherwise.
