Due to a crazy summer, it has been awhile since we’ve had a local actor or director profile, so this time we have someone who does pretty much everything–Greg Taber is both an actor and director, along with being a major force behind the Woodward Shakespeare Festival, and running his own theatre company.

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.

Its artistic director Joel Abels got the idea to start the company while living in New York, but his roots in Fresno go all the way back to when he performed with Good Company Players Junior Company as a youth.
