Theatre

While theatre starts slowly coming back to the stage, there still aren’t many shows to cover, so we are continuing to feature some local actors who have also been acting on our podcast, Mysteryrat’s Maze. This week we chatted with Fresno actor Donna Beavers, who has been the voice of three of our episodes. Mysteryrat’s Maze features mystery short stories and first chapters read by local actors.

Golden Chain Theatre: Our Common Journey

IN THE May 19 ISSUE

FROM THE 2021 Articles,
andTheatre
SECTIONS

by James Mierkey


How many articles have you seen in the past few months that begin with, “This past year has been a challenge for all of us…”? Thoughts like this tend to shift my focus from “what is” to “what was,” and I think there is a danger in spending too much time there. We really can’t be blamed, though, it’s hard to not get stuck pondering lost opportunities, and especially lost loved ones. I lost my dad in August of 2020, and it hurts still today. But dad would want me to be resilient and keep moving forward. So, from a platform of remembrance of lost opportunities, lost loved ones, and my dad, I will try to keep my focus on “what can.”

Live theatre—there’s nothing like it, right?
Sitting in a theatre with other audience members around you, watching onstage performers making you laugh, cry, gasp.And for a whole year, there’s been nothing. Like it? NO!
Now, baby steps are being made at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater, with the help of Dan Pessano and the Good Company Players.

While theatre on stage is still on hold for a little bit longer, with the exception of some virtual shows, we are continuing to feature some local actors who have also been acting on our podcast, Mysteryrat’s Maze. This week we chatted with Fresno actor Ian Jones, who has been the voice of a couple of our episodes. Mysteryrat’s Maze features mystery short stories and first chapters read by local actors. I first saw Ian on stage in 2015 in Fresno Soap Co.’s production of The Picture of Dorian Gray. Ian played Dorian and he did an amazing job–I have been watching his career ever since. I was excited to get to work with Ian on the podcast!
