Rae Matthews

Rae brings to the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival team over ten years of experience working with community and non-profit theaters in nearly every aspect of production, as well as several years of experience in event coordination, community outreach and graphic design for the hospitality industry. Rae began her career in theater as a scenic artist. After studying playwriting and directing at Loyola Marymount University, she joined a grass roots theatre company in Los Angeles where she developed, directed, and produced new works. There she learned, and acquired a passion for, the art of fundraising from the ground up. Rae received an M.A. in Cultural Studies from Mount St. Mary’s College and has been published on the subject of Shakespearean dramaturgy. She now resides in the Lake Tahoe area with her husband and her adorable corgi.
