Juan González, President
My name is José Juan González Carrillo; everybody calls me Juan. I am 52 years old and have been here over 10 years. My kids live in the states. I work for a USA company out of Ohio as an outsource agent and have been working from home since the pandemic started. I have volunteered at the theatre and love it and have also volunteered at the Cruz Roja Thrift Store. I hope to be useful with the theater . In fact, I guarantee it. [Editor's note: Juan is bilingual, which is a very great help to the Board and membership.] Contact: email@example.com

Paul Flowers, Vice President
Husband, father, grand-father, and soon to be a great-grand-father, retired mortgage banker. There is a saying "have all your ducks in a row;” we had them, and outside sources "shot" all my ducks. Living in Rosarito, made the decision that I needed to stay busy. On the board of various organizations, 5 years at Cruz Roja, recently as the President, Vice President of USBC, Baja Sand. Volunteer for Flying Sams, Baja Blues, and Head Usher @ RTG. It is my pleasure to serve on the board of RTG, being involved with the productions that we offer, makes me proud to be a part of this organization. Being involved gives me the feeling that I'm helping to create a better community.
Hello there, my name is Jo,
I'm pretty sane, no tales of woe
Married to Paul for 55+ years,
Giant roller coaster ride, with little fears
Plenty of ups and downs, held on tight,
Not tooo many problems were in sight
We have three children, wanted six,
Now six grandchildren fill the mix
Moved from San Francisco early in 2008,
Rosarito it seems was the great escape
Always owned my own business in the states,
Working for myself seemed to be my fate
Keeping busy has always been a challenge for me,
I meet that here with volunteering, not too many minutes free. Between Cruz Roja, USBC, Baja Sand, Blues Fest to name a few, Keeping busy as you can see, seems to be all I do.
Working with the Theatre, and helping there, makes me content,
It doesn't feel like work, pure enjoyment one hundred per-cent.
Arlene Belardi, Secretary
Having moved to Rosarito in Oct of 2014, she got involved in the theater rather quickly, volunteering as an usher and greeter for productions. Later, she was asked to audition for a major role in a play. While selected, that particular play didn't come to fruition.
Shortly after that, she was able to participate in a Murder Mystery Dinner, hosted at Oceana Grill. Her character was Nurse Nancy, who preferred men, and was a bit on the naughty side (wink, wink). What fun!
Then came her 1st stage performance as one of four women that made up a fictitious 1950's girls singing group, The Taffetas. Rehearsals were 5 days a week, and 5+ hours a day. That didn't include the many hours the girls spent individually at home, or getting together as a group on a Sat or Sun. There were a total of 37 songs that had to be learned, and that didn't include the choreography. OH THE CHOREOGRAPHY...lol. It was an endeavor of love (and sweat), and the outcome was a huge success, thanks to our wonderful theater patrons.
Since then, Arlene has performed as Elaine in Arsenic and Old Lace, Jinx in The Savannah Sipping Society (a part she is quite proud of) and as one of several Alices in A My Name is Alice, another musical production. She directed and acted as host in a murder mystery, called The Christmas Present. The actors themselves did not know who the murderer was, until he was revealed at the end of the play! Her most recent role was that of Cherri Pitt in another mystery, The Final Cut. Portraying an up and coming, ditzy movie star, she really got to ham it up a lot. Fun and silly!
As a board member, Arlene hopes to bring a fresh viewpoint, as well draw upon her own experiences with the RTG. She would love to see RTG obtain a new venue to continue to contribute to our lovely community, here in Rosarito!
