Elizabeth Yvette Ramirez (she/her/hers) is a Boston-area AEA stage manager and small theater director. She helmed the Calliope Project Theatre as Impressario and later Artistic Director (2011- 2014) and got involved in local arts activism after their regular venue, the Factory Theatre was closed. She continues to advocate for artists as a union organizer with the Boston Equity Liaison Committee. Elizabeth will also represent Boston as Liaison Delegate at the first national Actor’s Equity Convention in 2021.
As an Equity stage manager Elizabeth has worked with Central Square Theater, Moonbox Productions, Greater Boston Stage Company, Reagle Music Theater, Actors’ Shakespeare Project, New Repertory Theatre, and more. After directing with The Calliope Project and Ministry of Theater, Elizabeth found an artistic home as a company member at Flat Earth Theatre, an egalitarian theater company, where she directed the Norton Award nominated production of Not Medea in 2019.
She was last seen as an actor and director in the Boston Theater Marathon, but has no upcoming projects at the moment because of COVID-19. She is using this time to instead further the goals of equity, justice, and anti-racism at organizations she works with and the community at large.
She lives in Malden with her wife Olivia and their cat Tater Tot, and dreams of one day running a theater company dedicated to telling Latinx/Latine stories.
