Main Street Theatre Players group mourns the loss of member, actor John Olivera

 

A celebration of life was held at the Main Street Playhouse (MSP) on August 22 in honor of John Olivera, a long-time member, who passed away suddenly on August 2. 

 Past and present members of MSP gathered together, along with Olivera’s brother Alex, to laugh, cry and share wonderful memories. 

 Olivera was a member of the Main Street Players for many years, dating back to the mid 1990’s when it was still the Community Theatre of Hialeah- Miami Lakes, and shows were performed at the Goodlet Theater. 

 He played leads in nonmusicals such as A Miracle on 34 Street and Come Blow Your Horn.

 Although he didn’t consider himself a “musical guy,” he appeared in The Music Man, Oliver and Annie. 

 Olivera was also an active board member, holding the positions of box office manager, publicist and assistant set builder. 

 He was always ready to lend a helping hand when called upon, with good humor and a smile.

 Those who were lucky enough to know and work with Olivera will miss his sense of humor and warm heart. He was like family to many, may he rest in peace.
