Since theatre on stage is still on hold right now, we are continuing to feature some local actors who have also been acting on our podcast, Mysteryrat’s Maze. This week we chatted with local actor Julia Reimer who has been the voice of several of our episodes, and has another one coming up in December. She also teaches theatre at Fresno Pacific.

With theatre still on pause, which of course means no shows to review, KRL has been interviewing some local actors. This week we chatted with Visalia actor and director Nancy (Pollard) Holley who is a part of the Visalia Players. Nancy has had a long and varied career full of interesting stories.

Hi! Michael Sommers here! I’m a San Francisco actor/playwright. Well, I live in Oakland, but originally I’m from a small town in Vermont and I’m coming to The Rogue in Fresno!
You know, some playwrights can spend months in dank libraries researching script material for their plays. Not me! I just go outside and sit on my front steps!

Recently I had the chance to see Devan Bolding perform as Cinderella’s Prince and the Wolf in Raisin’ Cain Players production of Into The Woods at the Selma Arts Center. I loved his voice and performance and thought what a fun local actor profile he would make for KRL. I went to check him out and found out that he is also a musician. So I took some time to chat with this talented performer and learn more.

This Valley is overflowing with creative talent. We at KRL enjoy putting the spotlight on local performers so our readers can get to know them off the stage as well. This week we are profiling local actor Ryan David Torres.

This Valley is filled with an amazing amount of creative talent and every now and then we like to give our readers a chance to get to know some of that talent offstage. This week we are profiling one of the younger actors in Fresno, Tyler Branco. You may have seen this 22-year-old actor’s wonderful performance as Shrek, in Shrek the Musical at Roger Rocka’s, and later this year you will get to see him there in West Side Story and Addam’s Family.

Because the Valley has so much talent in it’s local theatre community, we like to profile local actors and directors and let people get to know the people they see on stage, and others behind the scenes that make these shows happen. After a break for the holidays we are back with a new profile, but this time we thought we’d do things a little differently–this time we have an interview with local actor/director Heather Parish who is also the founder of The New Ensemble theatre company in Fresno.

My inspiration to write A Pirate’s Promise came when my ex-husband scoffed at my predilection for reading historical romance novels rather than what he considered to be legitimate literature. He remarked more than once that he would never be caught dead reading such garbage. One evening I challenged, “You’d read any book I wrote, right?” With a chuckle that said clearly how utterly implausible he imagined the notion of my ever writing a book to be, he admitted that of course he would.
