The Educational Theatre Association’s (EdTA) board of directors appointed Carolina Garcia to a term on the governing board from July 2020 through June 2024.
Garcia is director of original series at Netflix, where she focuses on young adult and family content, which includes series such as The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Stranger Things, Fuller House, Raising Dion, Atypical, and others. She began her career in entertainment at 20th Century Fox Television as a creative executive on the original programming team.
In November 2019, Hollywood Reporter named her as one of the Top 35 Executives under 35 in its annual list of young execs leading “a seismic change” and poised to take the industry into the future. She has a degree in business administration and political science from the University of San Diego. Born in Argentina, she was raised in California and is an alum of International Thespian Troupe 2129 at Claremont High School in Claremont, Calif.
The 11-member EdTA board has eight directors elected from among the organization’s membership, most of whom are professional theatre educators, and three appointed positions. Appointed Board Members diversify the makeup of the EdTA Board of Directors. It is vital to the Association, as a leader in the theatre education world, to have firm and lasting connections to the creative leaders, producers, and individual artists currently working in the field.
