Mercurial. Playful. Queer af.
Hi everybody! My name is Charlie! Whats yours??!!*
Charlie Lavaroni (they/he/she) was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and continues to live and work bi-coastally- currently based in SF.
He is a multidisciplinary, award-winning, artist with a B.A. in Theater & Dance and English from the University of California, Davis. They have worked extensively throughout the Bay Area as an: actor, administrator, social media coordinator, dramaturg, assistant director, assistant stage manager and teaching artist. Just to name a few.
For the past few years, Charlie wears many hats at the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival especially in the Education Workgroup. Very exciting: she recently became a Resident Artist at Hamlet Isn't Dead in NYC where he performs in a wide range of Shakespeare productions.
His artistry functions primarily through a queer lens, and one of his main drives is queering the classical canon (especially musical theater and Shakespeare) and interrogating/exploding gender&Queerness itself through performance.
They are a true believer that theater can change lives for the better, bridge communities, and heal. Charlie plans on continuing his passion for teaching, acting, and literature through the lenses of teaching, acting, and public service. Feel free to contact her for inquiries with the form located in the "contact" page.
