Suzanne joined the Overtime Company in 2008 and is an actor.  She is a native San Antonian and counts parts in The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Night of the Living Dead among her favorite Overtime roles.  Regarding Theatre, she shared two quotes: “I like the ephemeral thing about theatre.  Every performance is like a ghost – it’s there and then it’s gone,” from Maggie Smith and “Theatre is a series of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster,” from Tom Stoppard.   Suzanne feels the Overtime is a place of family and community who all work together for one thing: for the love of theatre. The Overtime strives to create original, accessible and innovative theatre  – all at a very affordable price – for the good people of San Antonio, Texas and beyond!
