Nick Olivero, Artistic Director

Nick is a director, teacher, and clown extraordinaire. As Artistic Director of Boxcar Theatre, he oversees the creation of new and adapted plays. Nick’s experience with young adults runs the gamut — from working with youth playwrights, leading workshops and acting classes targeted to younger actors, to directing youth-performed musicals. Earlier, he directed musical theatre performances for The Imagination Players, a children’s theatre based in Berkeley. He also entertains as Mr. Scruffy the clown at children’s parties when he is not directing. Nick came to San Francisco in 2003 from Chicago, where he received his Bachelors in Acting and Directing from DePaul University.
