You’ve met our staff, now it’s time to get to know the board! First up, we have the wonderful Tiffany Maltos.
- What do you do? Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am the Education Outreach Manager at Seattle Children’s Theatre. When teaching artists go into schools, museums and community organizations to teach theater workshops or residencies, I’m behind the scenes making sure everything is in place for all to be successful. It’s a lot of coordinating! My favorite part of this job is that I am able to create new Outreach programing for communities in need. Thanks to some generous donors, we’ve been able to have theatre programs at the Abused Deaf Women’s Advocacy Services (ADWAS), Child Haven, King Juvenile Detention Center, and Neighborhood House Community Centers to name a few. We are expanding Outreach every day, and I am so excited to be able to support that growth.
- How long have you been on the board of TPS?
I’ve been on the Board of TPS for about 4 months.
- What do you love about our theatre community?
I love that there is so much theatre here, it could make your head pop! I come from San Antonio, TX and, while there is some great theatre there, it doesn’t feel as copious as the opportunities I’ve experienced here. It feels like there is a theatre company on every block! I love that there are so many producing companies here, it warrants several arts spaces for just creating. What a wonderful way to connect with the community.
- What are you excited about as a board member?
I’m excited to see TPS’ development. The whole TPS team has accomplished a lot! From establishing member meetings, to new types of events, affinity spaces, and fund raising goals, everyone works so hard to ensure that TPS is taking meaningful steps to nurturing the Puget Sound theatre community. WAY TO GO TPS TEAM!
