My first thought when I walked up the stairs of our building was that this truly is a beautiful spot for a theater. That feeling has never gone away. It feels like you’re driving into the forest when you come here and I’ve always relished that. We have the great privilege of helping to foster and grow the next generation of PSP theater. As President of the Executive Board, I will continue to strive to create excellent and specific art. I will work to help us create a better and more efficient system or organization. I also hope to help bring in an all-new audience base to the theater. Above all, I promise to love our theater. I adore our little theater in the woods and I will always want to see it grow and thrive. [Elected 2016-2019]

My first experience at PSP was directing A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which opened in April 2018. It was a magical experience, and as soon as the show closed I could not wait to come back and work on my next project at the theatre. My wish was granted in two ways. First, I was hired to direct City of Angels for the 2018-19 season. Second, I joined an incredible team of colleagues on the executive board. Previously, I served as the Co-Vice President of Volunteers as Commodore Sloat Elementary School in San Francisco. My goal is to help foster a community of theatre lovers who enjoy collaborating to produce great shows. [Appointed 2018-2019]

I’ve always been profoundly moved by theatre’s power to transform and inspire, and earned a B.A. in Theatre after studying acting, writing and design at U.C. San Diego. I’ve worked with PSP both on and offstage since 2015, and have been a member of both the Artistic Committee (Education Function Master, 2016-2017) and the Executive Board. PSP has given me the opportunity both to rekindle my own love of theatre, and to introduce my family to the same creative and magical world that has been such an inspiring force in my own life.

In the past year or so, PSP has essentially become my second home – I love spending time with the people and on the PSP stage. My biggest goal is the organization of our finances and files so we have detailed listings of all our records in one place that is easy to access. I would also like to brainstorm solutions to increase member participation and events – we have a strong community of members that we can partner with them to strengthen the theatre. This theatre has so much potential and I would love to explore new options, take some risks, and expand our reach in the community to help make PSP as strong and successful as it can be.

I have been active with Pacifica Spindrift Players for the past year, when I did my first PSP show, Gypsy, as Tulsa. I felt a uniquely welcoming atmosphere that I wished to join, thoroughly. Since that 2018 winter musical, I have gone on to act in PSP’s production of The Crucible, the first straight play I had done in fifteen years, and then make my directorial debut in directing My Fair Lady. The PSP theatre location, in a forest atop a hill, is a meditative inspiration, and the organization itself is a gem and a family. Having majored in Music in college, I have finally found my muse, in PSP, for contributing to achieve the best in community theatre. [Elected 2018-2021]

I have been acting in PSP shows since my childhood and have loved being a part of this community. I have been grateful for the opportunities it has given me to create art, and build wonderful friendships that have helped me to grow. so naturally I want to give back at least some of what I have gotten. My goals are to help engage our community in helping such a prized gem that lives among them. I would like to bring in funds to help our theater get the care and love it needs and help create more and more art we are proud of. Theater is such a collaborative art and there are so many different ways to collaborate, and I’m excited to be one piece in that collaboration. [Elected 2017-2020]

Sara Ramos has been involved with PSP since about 2006. She has worked countless productions backstage(with some brief onstage appearances), most notably as Stage Manager. Some favorite Stage Managing projects at PSP have been You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, Cabaret, and Noises Off (though there are many others that are close to her heart). Sara has been thrilled to serve as Secretary and Parliamentarian for the 2017-2018 year and is excited to serve another term trying to help improve the theater in any way she can. Sara has a B.A. in Theater Tech and Design from SFSU and can be found Stage Managing around the Bay Area, but she always makes her way back to PSP — the place that feels most like home.

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.
