1. Tell me about yourself and your relationship with performing arts and theater.

1: A friend of our family introduced me to the performing arts as a teenager. I’m so grateful to this friend who kindly shared tickets to SF symphony and opera performances. Subsequently, I got introduced to outdoor performances on the Peninsula, in Napa and at Stern Grove in San Francisco.

2. What do you love most about Cal Shakes?  Why are you proud To Be?

2: The outdoor aspect of performances is engaging and freeing. That’s something to love, as is the size of the Bruns (not too big).  It makes you feel like you are IN the play. I am proud To Be because of the productions presented each year.

3. What do you love most about Cal Shakes?  Why are you proud To Be?

3: Theatre confronts. Confrontation is not always comfortable but it initiates conversations. That is good.

4. How is Cal Shakes different from other companies, in your opinion?

4: The outdoor setting provides challenges … all of which adds to the experience. The aspect of intentionally sharing theater with members of the community who might not normally attend is impactful.

5. What’s your favorite thing we do off-stage, and why?

5: Meet and mingle in the woods surrounding the Brun is a favorite activity.  It creates a nice opportunity to talk about the Cal Shakes productions!
