Meet our newest member of the team...

Jeremiah Maestas
Jeremiah will be joining our workshop production to help us behind the scnes and we are so excited to have him on the team.

Jeremiah is a Colorado native who moved to California in 1994 to study at the University of San Diego. It was in San Diego that he found the Old Globe Theatre, one of the nation's top regional theatres, and it was there that his career in the theatre truly began.

Jeremiah began work at the Old Globe within the Development Department. There he assisted in the beginnings of a capital campaign, planned fundraising events, managed board meetings, and aided in the redefining and restructuring of the institution. During this transitionary period for the Old Globe Jeremiah began service in the Executive Offices, acting as Executive Assistant to the Managing Director, and coordinated many Board and Executive Committee functions. For the Education Department at the Globe, Jeremiah preformed as a "Play Guide", an interactive educator within the San Diego schools, helping to make Shakespeare more accessible to students of all ages. It was also during this time that he became associated with the Globe's Artistic Director, Jack O'Brien ("The Full Monty", "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels", "The Coast of Utopia", "Hairspray", etc.). For the past 7 years Maestas has served as Mr. O'Brien's personal assistant, bringing him East to New York and Connecticut to function in a variety of capacities both artistic and managerial.

Maestas is an actor of the stage and screen, a theatre technician, an educator and an aspiring director and producer. He has worked with theatre companies from coast to coast.

Welcome to the project Jeremiah... we know you are going to be an exciting creative addition to the team!
