Jeffrey Dietzler is the new director of the theatre program at Cardinal O’Hara High School.

He has worked in theatre as a director, assistant director, choreographer, stage manager and part of a technical crew. His most recent work includes a collaboration in the directorial role, leading programs at both Upper Darby High School and the Upper Darby Summer Stage.


Dietzler, a theatre major at DeSales University in Allentown, has been involved in theatre since the age of 6. He said he wishes to “create a theatre environment that challenges and inspires” his students.

In a June news release, the Cardinal O’Hara administration indicated Dietzler was the top candidate from a pool of 19, and that his “passion, pedagogy and dynamic attitude, along with his strong technical and creative skills, will be assets to the Cardinal O’Hara Theatre Program.”
