My Story

I’m Rena, a multi-hyphenate theatre artist often taking on the role of actor, director, choreographer, theatre educator and most recently: intimacy director! As a queer, white presenting latinx, female artist, I’m most passionate about telling queer stories and centering those that are underrepresented onstage. Creating and being a part of meaningful and conscious theatre is most important to me. I've most recently directed BOY by Anna Ziegler and starred as Girl in Once.

Sexual Orientation
iSexual orientation describes a person's enduring physical, romantic, and/or emotional attraction to another person.


Gender Identity
iOne’s internal, deeply held sense of gender. Some people identify completely with the gender they were assigned at birth (usually male or female), while others may identify with only a part of that gender, or not at all. Some people identify with another gender entirely. Unlike gender expression, gender identity is not visible to others.

iRacial identity is the qualitative meaning one ascribes to one’s racial group, whereas ethnic identity is a concept that refers to one’s sense of self as a member of an ethnic group. At their core, both constructs reflect an individual’s sense of self as a member of a group; however, racial identity integrates the impact of race and related factors, while ethnic identity is focused on ethnic and cultural factors. We celebrate our Keys’ intersectionality and understand that creating one’s racial/ethnic identity is a fluid and nonlinear process that varies for every person. Many folks will identify with more than one background while others will identify with a single group more broadly.
