Our Artistic Director

Colleen Naomi
Colleen Naomi (she/her) has been South Shore Players’ Artistic Director since 2016, having acted in her first SSP show the previous year. Her love of theatre, however, goes back further. As a 17-year-old, theatre was such an integral part of her life that Colleen organized a Performing Arts Festival of workshops and performances. In the early 1990s, she became involved with community theatre in Nelson, B.C. Since then, she has been having a grand time as playwright, actor, director and instructor of adults’ and children’s theatre programs.

In addition to loving the spotlight, she is passionate about theatre education – whether as student or teacher. She also plays leading lady to her partner, Paul, and is thrilled that most of their household is involved in the performing arts.
