Carmela Wolosz

Artistic Director, Executive Producer, Founder

Carmela founded Rhino Theatre in 2001 with a passion for the performing arts and made it her mission provide quality live theatre and theatre education for all who shared her love.  Under her guidance and leadership as Artistic Director, Rhino Theatre grew to become one of the most thriving theatre companies in the area.  Having produced over 300 shows, she recognizes the value of high quality theatre and each production is handled with the greatest of care.  She has created educational programs to shape performers, both young and young at heart, to develop their craft.  Carmela has shared her own talents onstage as a performer and as director both at Rhino Theatre and other local theatre companies.  With a new partnership, securing a second location has given her the beautiful opportunity to expand her mission and reach more performers, audience members, and students.

Jo Ann Ventor

Managing Director, Executive Producer

Jo Ann Ventor joined Rhino Theatre Group in 2016.  Prior to joining Rhino, she spent over 10 years in all aspects of theatre from costuming, set design/ decorating, directing, and producing.  In addition, her teaching certification lead her to  combine interests and become founder of a not-for-profit children's theatre troupe.  Producing relevant and interesting community theatre, lead her to a partnership with Carmela.  The hope is to build and grow the already successful Rhino brand by acquiring a second location and to continue to offer outstanding, affordable productions while propelling our children's programming, so that many more children may enjoy inclusion and expression -all the life's benefits theatre brings to each of us.
