Diane Willcox is Wharton Center’s Director of Marketing and Communications. She has a degree in theatre performance from Occidental College, Los Angeles. After realizing that performing was not for her, she decided to find a way to stay involved in the performing arts. After working in ticketing, technical direction, stage management and all things backstage, she moved into administration and marketing at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego before joining Broadway/San Diego in 2000, eventually becoming general manager of the company. At Broadway/San Diego, she initiated regular American Sign Language Interpretation, Open Captioning and Audio-Description of all events.
Diane had heard of Wharton Center by reputation and was looking for an opportunity to move to a more family-oriented community and lifestyle. She’s been in her position for the last six years, and is delighted to be working with this world-class performing arts center.
Diane has personal experience with family members who are developmentally disabled and living with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Knowing firsthand their experiences with live theatre, she has been especially motivated to create and advance a series of Sensory-Friendly Performances at Wharton Center as part of their many accessibility programs.
