Assistant Technical Director
About Nikolas Demers
Nikolas first became involved at the Renaissance Theatre via an internship during the summer of 2018. Since then, he has worked on nearly every production in a variety of positions, including: Stage Manager, Asst. Director, Props Master, Asst. Sound Technician, and Asst. Technical Director.
Nikolas grew up just a short drive away in Shelby. He was homeschooled for the first 17 years of his life, so the arts became an important outlet for him. He took music lessons for multiple instruments and participated in a variety of arts programs throughout his youth, but his first exposure to Theatre came from attending productions at the Renaissance from as early as 7 years old. Seeing these productions sparked an interest in him that would lead him to pursue theatre as a career. He attended Ashland University, and in 2020 he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Theatre and a minor in Digital Media Production.
Nikolas is thrilled to be a part of the Renaissance team, and to have a job that offers him so many opportunities to grow as an artist and technician.
