HELLO AND WELCOME!
Veronica “Vero” (veh-roh) Maynez (my-ness) here! I am a queer, Mexican-American, EMC Chicago-based actor and teaching artist, and graduate of the MFA Acting program at The Theatre School at DePaul University. A little bit about me: I am an Artistic Associate at Prop Thtr and a Teaching Artist in Residence at Writers Theatre! My hobbies include scrapbooking, trying new things, and yoga--I'm 250-Hour Yoga Certified by Core Power Yoga! I carry my BA in Theatre & Performance Studies from UC Berkeley, with a minor in Spanish; and have additional training from American Conservatory Theater. Below is a taste of what I've been up to lately but feel free to peruse my site for a more detailed look! <3
It's been a joy understudying the title character in American Blues Theater's world premiere production of Alma, in cooperation with Center Theatre Group. "A heartfelt and complex exploration of the immigrant generation and their first-generation children," Alma is directed by Ana Velazquez and written by Benjamin Benne. Visit the American Blues website for more info on the show including rave reviews!
