Executive Board


The HRDC Board strives to uphold the mission statement of the organization by promoting interest in theater at Harvard, organizing and administering student participation in productions housed in the Loeb Drama Center, and acting as an umbrella organization for Harvard theater by assisting in the production of theatrical works elsewhere on campus.

Please reach out to the relevant board member(s) with any inquiries, or you may reach the entire HRDC board at [email protected].

President: Julia Grullon ’24 (She/Her)

Julia Grullon is a junior in Adams from the SF Bay Area studying Psychology and Educational Studies. In her free time, she loves to stage manage, rock climb, pretend that 60% of her dietary intake doesn’t include KFT passion fruit green tea, and stare at strangers’ dogs for longer than what is socially acceptable!

DUTIES: The Presidents of the HRDC, in addition to facilitating and coordinating the actions of all other board members, serve as the primary liaison between the ART, OFA, Committee of Dramatic Arts, and Deans of Harvard College.

Co-Vice Presidents: Caron Kim ’24 (She/Her) and Matt Given ’25 (He/Him) 

Matt is a sophomore in Quincy studying History and Literature. He loves being on both sides of the stage, and when he’s not acting, writing, or directing, he’s probably spending all his money on Jefe’s.

DUTIES: The VP coordinates the HRDC productions that occur on the Mainstage of the Loeb every semester.

Treasurer: Nikhil Kamat ’25 (He/Him)

DUTIES: The Treasurer is in charge of finances for the Loeb Ex and Mainstage, as well as the HRDC budget. If you have a question about reimbursements, allowable items for a budget, or ideas for HRDC purchases, email the treasurer!

Tech Chair: Clarissa Briasco-Stewart ’24 (She/They)

Clarissa is a junior in Leverett studying Linguistics with a secondary in Computer Science who enjoys drinking tea, misusing Adobe Creative Cloud applications for personal amusement, and playing video games. Despite being easily distracted by anything that glows, shines, or sparkles, Clarissa is definitely not a magpie. Or any other kind of corvid. Definitely.

DUTIES: The Tech Chair works to strengthen the tech community on campus by answering questions, directing students towards resources that may help them, and providing advice on design and technical execution for productions in need.

Common Casting Chair: Em Barnes ’25 (She/Her)

Em Barnes is a sophomore living in Winthrop concentrating in Human Developmental and Regenerative Biology. When she’s not learning about infectious diseases, you can find her testing the limits of an air fryer and hunching over Google Calendar. Ask her about her dice collection!

DUTIES: The Campus Liaison is responsible for the organization and running of Common Casting, and keeps in contact with the different theater groups on campus and with the drama tutors in the houses.

Publicity Chair: Texaco Texeira-Ramos ’26 (They/She)

Texaco is a first-year intending on concentrating in Art, Film, and Visual Studies. When they’re not completely absorbed by theater (so almost never) they can be found listening to music, buying snacks from Wholesome Fresh and being obnoxious with their friends in the dining hall.

DUTIES: The Publicity Chair releases the weekly HRDC Newsletter and works to plan events to help build community within the Harvard arts scene.

Secretary/Historian: Elizabeth “Liz” Resner  ’25 (She/Her)

Elizabeth “Liz” Resner is a sophomore in Leverett House studying History and Human Developmental & Regenerative Biology (aka HDRB which confuses everyone when she talks about “HRDC” and “HDRB”). When not sending an “important production updates” email, she is likely road cycling, looking at floorpans of eight bedroom Victorian houses, or crafting homemade memes to be sent at the bottom of her “important production updates” emails.

DUTIES: The Secretary/Historian acts as an administrative lead for HRDC documentation, serves as the coordinator of HRDC alumni relations, and serves as the primary liaison between the HRDC and the Harvard Theater Collection.

Social Liaison: Roseanne Strategos ’25 (She/Her)

Roseanne is a sophomore in Winthrop House double concentrating in Music and Integrative Biology. If you want to have fun, ask Roseanne for permission. She is the Party Czar. Don’t make her angry. Or else you won’t have fun. For legal reasons, this is not a threat.


HRDC Board Elections are held annually, in November, at an open meeting of the HRDC. Each officer holds their position for one calendar year. New members assume the duties and privileges of office at the beginning of the spring semester.

Anyone who has been involved with a campus production in any way can run for the HRDC Board. Candidates are encouraged to look at the duties and responsibilities of each position (described above and in the HRDC Constitution) and to email current board members to learn more about their perspective office when deciding to run. Candidates for office should nominate themselves by submitting a statement of interest to the current Executive Board at least two days prior to the election. A majority vote by members of the HRDC present at the open meeting determines the elected officers of the HRDC Executive Board. Candidates may be nominated from the floor.
