My first love will always be the theatre. I’ve been in musicals since Pre-K, and currently perform with AfterWork Theatre (most recently as Nicely Nicely Johnson in Guys & Dolls!). I graduated from Vassar College with a B.A. in Drama and Psychology. At Vassar, my focus was on theatre directing, culminating with my thesis of boom by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb (pictured above). I pride myself on being a theatre “Jax of All Trades” with background in carpentry/sets, prop design, stage management, dramaturgy, staged readings, one-person plays, and devised theatre. My lived experience as a trans non-binary Filipino-American feminist, advocate, and educator are fundamental to my current and future theatrical endeavors. I am proud volunteer for Afterwork Theater’s “Strike-A-Chord” Core committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Written and performed by Antonia Lassar. The lives of survivors, perpetrators, and bystanders weave together in a wickedly funny and piercingly insightful one-woman show about a community trying to heal after a sexual assault. Post Traumatic Super Delightful (PTSD) is a groundbreaking theatrical program about the sexual assault crisis on college campuses. The program combines a night of live theatre with a series of workshops about sexual violence prevention and Title IX, engaging a wider campus audience than traditional sexual violence prevention programs. The PTSD program doesn’t just start a conversation about sexual violence; it provides the knowledge and structure to continue that conversation long after PTSD has left campus. Post Traumatic Super Delightful is more than a piece of theatre; it’s an educational tool about the successes, challenges, and complexities of sexual assault prevention, including Title IX legislation.
