Dear Big Noise Theatre Community,
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the loss of board member Daiva Paulis, who passed away in her home on Sunday, November 15. Daiva was a long-time champion for Big Noise Theatre and the arts, and served the organization in a number of capacities, including Vice President of the Board.
Daiva was involved in countless productions with our company, ranging in roles from Stage Manager, Producer, Stage Crew, and more in some of our most beloved shows, such as BIG FISH, CABARET, RAGTIME, HAIR, DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, RENT, and SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE. Her passionate spirit and hard work was unparalleled; every production that Daiva touched was in turn made better for it. She was truly a presence within Big Noise Theatre, and one that we as a community will be mourning for a long time.
