Our Board of Directors
Luis Marrero started off acting at New Britain High School where he participated in the NBHS Drama Club’s production of Blithe Spirit as the venerable Dr. Bradman. When he began attending Tunxis Community College, he performed in several roles at Tunxis Stage, including Ernest in The Importance of Being Earnest, Cpt. Bluntschli in Arms and the Man, and Berenger in Rhinoceros. He also played Colonel Gad Stanley and Sherman Avery in the 2017 and 2018 Timeless Tales with the Parks and Recreation Department of New Britain.
He made his debut at HITW in the theater’s 2017 production of Travesties, in the role of Bennett, the socialist manservant. He has played many roles at the theater since then, including the White Rabbit and March Hare in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Cassius in Julius Caesar, and Roquefort Ladida in School for Manners.
Not every role Luis has played at the theater has been of the on-stage variety. Luis has participated in the theater as a concessions volunteer, house manager, executive house manager, fundraiser, and publicist. In 2019 he directed Virtual Devotion by Eric Coble at HITW. He has produced one mainstage show- The Haunting of Hill House, one showcase- The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon, and two instances of HITW’s Annual Hole in One. He was elected to serve on the board in late 2018, and in 2019 he was elected to serve as Vice President of the board.
Lauren first became involved with Hole in the Wall in the spring of 2018, as the producer of Our House, and was elected treasurer in June of 2019. While she hasn’t been on stage in many (many) years, she is a lifelong lover of theater and the arts. When she isn’t working in the box office or balancing the books, you can probably find her playing with makeup or whipping up something yummy in the kitchen.
Warren Dutkiewicz has been a member of HITW since 1988. He has served on the board a few times taking the position of treasurer and then bookkeeper. He has acted and directed in over 30+ productions at Hole in the Wall Theater. His interest is to see the company continue through the next generation of performers and caretakers.
John got his start at HITW holding up a giant seashell in 2016’s production of Still Life with Iris. Since then, he can usually be found up in the booth running the lights and/or sound (The Pirates of Penzance, Travesties, Alice in Wonderland, The Glass Menagerie, etc.) , running around backstage as a stage manager (Much Ado About Nothing, Macbeth), acting on the stage (Julius Caesar, The Laramie Project), and even directing (The Haunting of Hill House). On the board, John helps get the word out writing newsletters for the HITW blog and putting together press releases to send around CT. Outside the theater, John attends CCSU working to finish his Bachelor’s in Accounting. A lover of stories of all forms, he likes to spend most of his free time enjoying his favorite hobbies of anime and video games and can usually be found perusing the shelves of the local Barnes and Noble.
