Traci DeAngelis

For over ten years Traci DeAngelis has fostered her love of creating art on stage. Traci is incredibly passionate about creating collaborative art in an ensemble cooperative atmosphere. She loves focusing on new works and pushing the experimental boundary of the live theatrical experience.

She received her BA in theatre at Queens College and it was here under the wing of professor and brilliant designer Meghan Healey she found and began to nurture her talents in costume design. While at Queens College Traci had the opportunity to partake in a study abroad experience in Galway Ireland that focused on the plays "Playboy of the Western World" by J.M. Synge and "Translations" by Brian Friel.  She reprised the role of Sarah which she had studied while in Ireland for the 101st anniversary production of "Playboy of the Western World" at Queens College.  During this time Traci was given the chance to work with the wonderful theatrical dialect coach Stephen Gabis and Oscar nominee Stephen Rea.

In 2009 she became an executive board member of Benefit of the Doubt Theatre Company and has successfully produced, directed, designed and acted in a multitude of productions in the New York area, as well as co-produced and starred in their international production of Darlene Craviotto’s “Pizza Man” at the Studio Space at Townhall Theatre in Galway Ireland. 
Traci has been the Costume Shop Manager for the annual Queens College Summer Performing Arts Festival since 2010 where she has costume designed William Shakespeare's  "Much Ado About Nothing", "Measure for Measure" and "Macbeth" as well as the dark musical comedy "Assassins".

In 2014 Traci began working with Original Binding Productions having costume designed “My Father’s Ashes; The Sister’s Play” by Tom Slot and appearing in their production of Shakespeare's "A Mid Summer Nights Dream".
