Over the past few months, our team has been working hard to identify the newest member of our collaborative staff and board team. We’re thrilled to announce that as of this past week, we are joined by Managing Director Ivette Deltoro.
Please join us in giving a warm welcome to Ivette, who has been an integral member of the Bay Area theater community since 2011, with work both onstage and behind the scenes. A graduate of the Foothill Theatre Conservatory, her main focus was in acting but soon expanded to other administrative aspects of theater-making. She is a passionate proponent of equity, diversity, and inclusion practices, with a particular interest in the inclusion of intimacy direction and safety practices within the community.
Apart from her work with Teatro Visión, Ivette also serves as the Casting Assistant and Patron Experience Manager with City Lights Theater Company. Since 2013, she has been deeply involved in multi-department administrative and artistic decisions within the company. She was also a co-creator of the Mini Lights Emerging Artist pilot program.
Onstage credits include Anne Boleyn in Anne of the Thousand Days with Dragon Productions, as well as Avery in Rapture, Blister, Burn, and Caroline in I and You, both with City Lights Theater Company. She has also worked behind the scenes as an assistant director, assistant stage manager, and props designer.
Ivette holds a B.S. in Family and Human Development from Arizona State University. In her spare time, she loves to bake (especially with her sourdough starter), attempts to garden, and produces a podcast with her partner.
We could not be more excited for each of you to get to know Ivette in the coming months! Keep an eye out for her in the lobby when you come to our upcoming shows, and say hello to her anywhere you interact with Teatro Vision.
