KRL always enjoys taking a look behind the curtain of local theatre. We have interviewed actors, singers, dancers, directors, and more. This week we are interviewing someone who either has, or will be doing, most of those during his time in local theatre, Shawn Williams. Recently he was seen reprising his role of Buddy in Elf at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater, presented by Good Company Players.

Q & A With Local & Podcast Actor Ian Jones

by Lorie Lewis Ham

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!
