Terri Zaneski has been in love with the theatre ever since she played a sugarplum
in a school production of “Swan Lake” in second grade. While living in New York,
Terri was involved in a number of productions in what is termed the “off-off” Broadway
theatre while working at AT&T. She also honed her administrative skills as the “Jill-of-all-trades” for
the St. Bart’s Players, a well-known community theater housed in St. Bartholomew’s
Episcopal Church on the East Side.
When Terri returned to Los Angeles in the mid ‘80’s, she saw an announcement
in Backstage for a membership meeting for Women in Theatre. Thus began an almost
three decade long relationship. Terri was invited to join the Board of Directors
and acted as Secretary under the presidencies of Dorothy Lyman, Arlene Golonka
and Robin Strasser. She was also the office administrator and during those years
helped organize theatre parties, fundraisers, workshops and seminars as well
as a myriad of office duties.
Terri now works for an entertainment lawyer in Beverly Hills where, what else!...
she manages the office. Always finding time to support live theatre, Terri figures
she sees at least 20-30 productions a year. Terri is proud to support Women
in Theatre and its efforts to recognize some of the unsung heroes in all areas
of the performing arts.
