Jeff Savage: The theater feels like home to Jeff. He literally grew up onstage; as a child he spent many years enrolled at a professional theater arts school in Michigan. He is an award-winning public speaker and seasoned improvisational actor.
Pat Hayes: Directed Jean Kerr's "Mary, Mary" in Quito, Ecuador. Her favorite shows: directing and acting in a Greek chorus version of "One Fish, Two Fish" by Dr. Seuss and playing the tipsy Irish nun in a 24-hour theater show in Petaluma.
Mike Hayes: It was a long time ago but Mike is pretty sure he played Ali Hakim in "Oklahoma" in Quito, Ecuador. More recently he was a surly cowboy in Petaluma's 24-hour theater.
Rachel Bockover: A singer-songwriter with an alternative folk rock style, sprinkled with Middle Eastern and Native American influences. Rachel entwines her unique melodies and songwriting into soulful ballads that open the soul.
