Theatre Artists


 
THE CHAMELEONS aka KEITH BURGER & SHARON DISKIN
     in SLICE OF LIFE

          The immensely talented Keith Berger and Sharon Diskin have performed as a team since 1985, delighting a wide range of concert audiences in North America and Europe. Noted for their exciting performance style and professional discipline, Sharon and Keith have been well received at colleges, community concert halls, art centers and legitimate theatres. Among these are New York City's La Mama, etc., L.A.’s House of Blues, and two critically acclaimed runs at The Edinburgh Festival in Scotland.

JIM GAMBLE PUPPET PRODUCTIONS
       JGPP has an extensive repertoire of original state-of-the-art productions, each with its own set of unique puppet characters. Several productions have been duplicated completely, allowing use by JGPP puppeters in different locations simlutaneously. All shows are designed to travel by commercial air or van and the JGPP staffkeeps puppets and equipment in a constant state of good repair.

THE HAPPY PRINCE by Oscar Wilde
   Starring ORESTE CASTAGNA (for young audiences)

      This production is adapted from one of Oscar Wilde's beautiful fairy tales. It is the story of a profound friendship between a swallow and a statue of a prince covered with precious jewels. This friendship evolves into love and they become bittersweet accomplices. In spite of the impending arrival of winter, the swallow stays to help the prince distribute his riches to the poor and disinherited of the city.

GEOFF HOYLE
     A HOYLE IN ONE
      
Working in classic commedia fashion, the clown Geoff Hoyle and his "midwife" -- as the director Tony Taccone dubs himself -- give birth to antic entertainments that are hard to categorize. "I would call it clown ballet," says Taccone, the artistic director of the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, where the duo's latest opus, The First Hundred Years, was produced.

IMAGO THEATRE Production of FROGZ
       Imago's unusual images and creatures show shades of humanity in the world of the fantastic: a larval insect performs impossible acrobatic feats; a human shadow bursts into flames; a sphere transforms from an eggplant to boulder to circus performer. This creates in the viewer a sense of wonder reminding us all of our common link we share with animals, objects and phenomena in our universe. Like futuristic magicians, Imago playfully distorts the scientific laws of our world and creates illusions that tickle a funny bone in our sense of "what we think to be true".

TOM MURPHY in "MetaMURPHosis"
      
Mr. Murphy's performance might be best described as a synthesis of the European clown and the classic American physical comedian. It is an impetuous journey into the world of MURPH, a selfless, self-conscious, guilt-ridden, Catholic, solo entertainer of the 90's. He will entertain you, he must entertain you...at any cost! It is up front, honest to goodness, in your face and at the same time sensitive physical comedy!

JOSEPH MYDELL
   "OLIVIER AWARD WINNER" as Paul Laurence Dunbar
in:
   LYRICS OF THE HEARTHSIDE
      A brilliant one-man show based on the work of the foremost black writer of the 19th century. Winner of "The Scotsman Fringe First Award" at the Edinburgh Festival. Joseph Mydell creates an evocative portrayal of both the poet and turn-of-the-century America.
