Meet Primo Thomas: Technical Director

Theatre changed my life. I know that sounds dramatic and cliched, but it’s a fact. I arrived at NU as a hospitality major who had a hidden passion for Theatre. I was content to consider Theatre a hobby until I found the Theatre program at NU and was shown that my passion could be my career. Theatre allowed me to discover the person I wanted to be, it gave me a family, and it gave me the love of my life. Because of NU and because of Theatre I get to live my dream every day by creating and passing on my love of design to a younger generation of creators and artists. To me, one of the most important things in life is what we leave behind, the legacy we leave. I want my legacy to be in what we create at 13 Players and the lives we touch through Theatre. I cannot wait to share our passion and love of Theatre with all of you.
