About Me

Steven Franco (he/him/él) is a first-generation Guatemalan-American theatre artist, activist, and arts administrator, currently based and originally from the DMV area. He is a recent graduate of George Mason University, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre.

 

At Mason, Steven co-founded Players4Change, a student organization that advocates for the existence and empowerment of BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and Disabled students within the university’s theatre program. In doing this, Steven has learned to make space and prioritize community building through a marginalized lens.

 

He now focuses on pushing barriers and decolonizing theatre-making through performance, advocacy, and cultivating anti-racist practices in all theatre spaces. In addition, Steven has previously worked with Broadway for Racial Justice, and the Center for Culture, Equity, and Empowerment at GMU. He is also a recent alum of the Overtures Musical Theatre Institute at Signature Theatre.

 

Steven was last seen as the Understudy for Padrino and Joey in Cinderella: A Salsa Fairy Tale at Imagination Stage in Bethesda, MD.

 

He currently serves as the Marketing Fellow for the Lin-Manuel Miranda Family Fellowship at the Tony Award®-winning, Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in Washington, DC.
