Company Administration

Technical Director: Alexis Orth

Appointed 2022

Alexis Orth has her B.A. in Theatre Arts from New York’s Bard College, and also an honorary degree in prop making from Koinonia University in San Francisco. As she currently finishes her final semester of her Master’s degree in Theatre through Regent University, she strongly identifies with PSP’s aim for inclusivity within its creative works. She values the inclusion of the marginalized, fully embraces volunteerism that brings transformation, and desires to create a legacy for love of theatre. She believes Art is necessary and theatre is one of its brightest fireworks.

PSP’s need for a Technical Director with a dramaturgical mindset brought Alexis on board this year. Her experience includes scenic, props, and set dressing work with Cal Shakes and the San Francisco Dickens Christmas Fair, scenic, lighting, and props head mastering for Brava for Women in the Performing Arts and Marin Theatre Company, and helping out at PSP off and on since 2016 and more.  She is a multi-disciplined artist onstage and backstage with a diverse background who believes in the theatre’s amazing life-changing power and she’s got the arc welder to prove it. Her finest accomplishments are her love for Jesus Christ and her outstanding family: Paul, Chloe, Jude, & Kelly Orth.

I have been involved at Pacifica Spindrift Players both as a performer and costume designer since 2015 (occasionally doing double-duty as both in the same show). I was appointed the Resident Costume Master at PSP in 2017. I studied Theatre Arts with an emphasis in Costume Design at San Francisco State University. In my role as Costume Coordinator at PSP, I aim to aid the artistic vision of our season’s directors and designers, as well as assist other local theatre organizations with costume rentals.

Ever since I can remember I have been in the theatre, in one way or another. I have been part of PSP since 2002 and love every bit of it. I have worked both on stage and the “Dark Side”. My goal is to help make our shows into a visual and auditory wonderland using the technical capabilities of this wonderful theatre. Also to upgrade our technical potential and bring PSP to the cutting edge!

My family and I have been Pacifica residents (having moved here from our native San Francisco) since 1975 and began attending PSP productions in 1989 and then began volunteering in box office and hospitality. I am very passionate about PSP and my goals for the coming year are to ensure that our theatre continues to be a welcoming, inviting and warm environment for our patrons, our volunteers and all others who enter our “little gem” in the woods, as well as help raise the funds we need to ensure that PSP maintains its presence in Pacifica and the surrounding Bay Area Communities by so we can provide high quality live community theatre and maintain our positive presence.

Many years ago I was involved in High School Theater. In the 90’s I was involved with The Hayward Little Theater. My main interest is in the technical side of theater, specifically building. I plan to continue to support PSP’s efforts to assemble quality and innovative sets for quality productions at PSP.
