Cristy Rodriguez Rivas
Stage Management, Performance, and Beyond
Hi! My name is Cristina Rodriguez Rivas but, all my friends and colleagues call me Cristy.
I serve on the advisory board for Unity Theatre Collective, work in higher education, and Stage Manage for Arts Under The Stars at CSU Channel Islands.
I am an alum of California State University Channel Islands. I graduated in May 2019 with a B.A. in Communication and a B.A. in Performing Arts.
My work ethic revolves around:
Respect for one's team, especially in understanding where one's work fits into their organization
A welcoming, friendly, courteous experience for clients that is consistently excellent
Accessibility and accountability of organizations
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion at all levels of work
Fair and equitable pay discussions, especially with Union representation
Creativity in solutions, problem-solving, and innovation
Bringing the central ideas and mission statements into the daily grind
The freedom to change, grow, and develop as a person and as a professional at your own pace
I'd love to get connected and talk about collaborations and projects!
From pre-production of a live production to running cues. I love being a part of a team and working on making a live production flow smoothly and safely. I've always relished a job where it is not only encouraged but, expected to wear black from head to toe.
Practice Makes Perfect
Need help with a résumé or cover letter? Want to update your current one? Start a new one for a new career? Making yours for the first time? I offer one-on-one workshop sessions to review your job application documents and even do things like mock-interviews.
With a background in performing, I love bringing live-entertainment. Whether you are looking for a performer in your project or entertainment at your event, I'd love to bring music to you!
