Welcome, Olivia!

SRT welcomes our new Co-Artistic Director, Olivia Mora.

Spring 2014 marked the start of our 12th season, and Sonnet Rep has built a reputation not only for quality in classic theatre in New York City, but also excellence in operations -- which is a testament to the community of support for which we are so very grateful!

As we transition forward, after seven successful years as Co-Artistic Director, Tiffany Little Canfield moved into a new role at SRT. As Artistic Associate, Tiffany will continue to be involved in the creative direction of the company and remain an integral member of the staff and Board of Directors.

Joining Todd Loyd as SRT's new Co-Artistic Director is Olivia Mora. Olivia couldn’t be happier to partner with Sonnet Rep and Todd, who she’s worked with on various projects since they were 14 years old. Prior to New York, Olivia was Associate Artistic Director for Maui Academy of Performing Arts. She’s worked in theatre and theatre education for over 20 years as a teacher, director, choreographer, actor and everything else in between. Currently, Olivia works as Assistant Director of Admissions at a private school in New York City where she also directs Shakespeare projects for the Middle and Upper School divisions. Olivia is a graduate of PCPA Theaterfest and holds a BA in theatre/modern choreography from Mills College.

We welcome Olivia to the team, and look forward to 2015 and beyond ...
