I like to make things happen! It all started when I didn’t enough opportunities around me for myself and my peers, and so I put up a benefit concert where everyone got to have a solo moment. My ideas got bigger and I met more people I wanted to support and uplift, and here we are now. I just want to make people’s dreams come true.

Love Nurse, or Production Assistant | "Diana Oh is a witch. She knows it. So do her closest friends. Clairvoyance runs in her family. She went to a spiritual counselor in the jungle in Thailand, and the spiritual counselor told her to sing and go wild in Boston. Everything else the spiritual counselor said came true, so Diana is doing it. Clairvoyance, as a series of installations and concert, is created and creative directed by Oh with installations staged by Oh. The concert is love doctored by Oh and Mei Ann Teo and features special guests and Clairvoyance deities from the Boston arts scene."
Summer 2018 Education & Outreach Intern | I supported the Public Engagement & Education Department through the FreshPlay Festival Festival '18, which showcased nine full-length staged readings by high school playwrights in collaboration with professional actors and directors, and What Now Workshops, weekly workshops on playwriting, songwriting, acting, college auditions, mental health, sexual harrassment and domestic abuse bystander training, resources, and more. I also created a weekly resource newsletter for MCC Youth Company members and alumni, and assistant directed the devised piece "Lost and Found" for Rebel Verses Youth Arts Festival 2018.
Artistic Producer | During the senior year of the BFA Theatre Arts major program, the students come together to form Senior Theatre Arts Majors Productions, or STAMP. They program a full year of community events, fundraisers, and theatre productions as part of their thesis. In addition to producing, directing, and performing in my thesis musical, I was the Producing Artistic Director of STAMP GALA: Ballin' on a Budget, which included creating and directing an interactive performance that guided guests into the gala away from "papparazzi", "crazy fans" and "celebrity divas", choreographing mid-event performances, and overseeing the raffle prize event. I also served as Food Coordinator and Advisor on smaller fundraisers, such as our Haunted House and Folk Night.
Producing Artistic Director | The summer after my freshman year of college, I produced a three-day festival showcasing ten 10 minute plays and 1 one act play at the community theater I grew up in, Skippack Playcrafters. I programmed, scheduled, budgeted, cast, advertised, and even directed two plays. High school and college students got to work as actors, assistant directors, designers, and stage managers on new and experimental plays alongside professional actors and directors from the Greater Philadelphia area.
