Once Maria naively told an artistic director "if you ever need a hand...call me". Several jobs later, she found herself as Pacific Theatre's resident kitchen wench, and occasional props mistress/stage manager/stage mother. From that wonderful launch pad she has worked all over the place with all sort of wonderful folks. She has done most everything in theatre except act, which terrifies her and gives her a healthy respect for her performers. She has had the pleasure of working on many excellent productions like: Brilliant Traces (Moonlight Monkey), Hedwig and the Angry Inch (Hoarse Raven), Mental! The Musical (Midas and Lilybee); Storytelling Our Lives (Puente Theatre); Mz. Judged (Ask Wellness); The Western Canada Games Opening Ceremonies (BC Living Arts) and Evil Dead The Musical (DSRP). Theatre being more a life than a living…Maria supports her theater habit with a job as a social worker... similar to stage management actually.
