Act II Has a New Marketing Director

You'll see a new face around Stages these days... Theater, PR, and marketing professional Melissa Tropp has joined the team as Act II's new Director of Marketing! Tropp comes to Vallarta by way of Chicago, where she worked as an actor, administrator, marketer, and publicist in Chicago's theater community for about 20 years before relocating here.

"I couldn't be happier to be joining the Act II family," she says, "This is an amazing group of fantastic people and talented performers, and I'm so glad to have found such a great place to put my skills and experience to good use." With an undergraduate degree in acting and a master's in PR & Advertising, combined with her years of experience as a freelance theater publicist, Tropp's background is perfectly suited for a position like this with Act II.
