HIVE MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: Amy DeLuca
Paradise Theatre of Paonia
Green Lotus Events
Amy DeLuca is passionately dedicated to serving up enlightening entertainment and fun. A mother, serial entrepreneur, theater director, event planner, yoga teacher, and fashion designer, she wields a host of magic wands.
Amy came to the Hive as many other movers and shakers do: On the wings of entrepreneurial and creative friends who were working and meeting here.
Since her arrival in the North Fork Valley five years ago, she’s directed programming for the Paradise Theatre in Paonia and run her own event planning business.
As the Artistic Director of the Paradise Theatre, Amy works in front of and behind the scenes to bring diverse, quality art and entertainment to the community. She selects the films that are screened, organizes concerts and special events, directs the Paonia Film Festival, and frequently peddles popcorn for the people. The theater is currently running a fundraising campaign “Take a Seat at the Paradise” to purchase the building and expand the facilities.
Alongside her work at the Paradise, Amy does full service event organizing for private parties, festivals, weddings, and fundraisers through her company Green Lotus Events.
Her latest entrepreneurial endeavor: Amy and her husband Frederick are opening a bike shop and juice bar in downtown Paonia. They are transforming the old video store on Grand Ave. into the “Cirque Ciclery & Juice Café”, and will open to the public around the holidays.
Among the feathers in her cap, (Coincidentally, Amy designs “fascinators” – blinged-out feather and flower headdresses), she was recently recognized by the Colorado Tourism Office as one of Colorado’s Exceptional Frontline Workers.
