Paloma is a Beacon-based event producer with a focus on community engagement, and is the newly minted Market Manager for the Beacon Farmers Market with guidance from Common Ground Farm. Her last project was as the Associate Producer for Full Circle at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, where she led an ambitious 43-person cast of warehouse workers, doctors, teachers, doulas, clowns, professional performers, and other community members in a new production of “Rip Van Winkle; or Cut the Old Moon into Stars.” In that time she also produced the play reading series “HVSF2” at the Philipstown Depot Theatre. Before moving to the Hudson Valley, she was a special events planner and theatrical stage manager in NYC working with such companies as BAM (the Brooklyn Academy of Music), Under the Radar at The Public Theater, Signature Theatre, Jessica Lang Dance, The Bushwick Starr, and fellow Brooklyn-turned-Beacon-ites Banana, Bag, and Bodice.
