Ariel López- Board Chair
Member Since 2015

Ariel has been part of the theater world since he was young, participating actively in community theater. As he grew a bit older, he began to realize that he was a terrible actor, and left the stage for the more comfortable audience seats. Since that time, he has supported local theater as a patron and volunteer, and is excited to serve on Theater Pro Rata’s board.

Ariel holds a B.A. in English and Spanish from DePauw University, and a J.D. from Hamline University School of Law (now known as Mitchell Hamline School of Law). He currently lives in south Minneapolis, and works as an attorney in the e-discovery and litigation support arenas.
