“The Good Body” has a GREAT Director! (And here is more about her, in her own words!)

1383159_10151659860885213_2064949460_nEleisa Cambra has directed multiple shows of “The Vagina Monologues” for Tri-Valley Haven and is a powerhouse woman, with years of theater experience, a great sense of humor, a clear vision, and a whole load of courage.  She is also an alum of Las Positas College’s theater department, so putting the new show, “The Good Body” by Eve Ensler, on at Las Positas’ Mertes theater is a great opportunity!

I have gotten the chance to talk to Eleisa about what brought her to initially work with the Tri-Valley Haven putting on The Vagina Monologues, and other questions–some serious and some less so–to give you all a chance to meet her.  The interview will be in multiple parts, each one a question.  So, without further ado…

You have been the very successful director that got “The Vagina Monologues” rolling in Livermore as a benefit for Tri-Valley Haven. Do you want to tell us a little bit about how you got involved in the project?

Lisa:  “A dear friend of mine was dating a woman that works at Tri-Valley Haven. I invited him to bring her to a show that I was stage-managing at the Village Theater in Danville. After the show, she came up to me and said that the Haven was thinking about doing “The Vagina Monologues.” I told her, “You are talking to the right gal!”  (Hehe! No ego here!) After that, we got together and it grew from there, a beautiful accident. I’m really lucky that I’ve been able to be a part of this, and to have been able to contribute to the Tri-Valley Haven.”

More in our next post! :)
