AMERICAN WIZARDS by David Hirata
Naomi Purohas studied Storytelling at Stagebridge in Oakland, and performed at the Monday Night Marsh & Laugh Lines in San Francisco. She has been teaching Dance & Movement classes to Older Adults for so many years, that she’s become an older adult. Her weekly Fun Fitness & Dance class at the Berkeley Jewish Community Center is in its thirty-fourth year! “A Travel Curveball” is directed by Jeanne Haynes.
Geoff Hirsch has been teaching math for over 30 years at Ohlone College and the College of San Mateo. He changed his schedule so he might Tell It On Tuesday. He owns the world’s most diverse tie collection (Google Geoff Hirsch ‘As long as I got my suit and tie’). He was the first person in the Third Millennium, but that’s another story.
Phil Surkis was inspired to try a comedic storytelling and comedy producing after leading a Seder. Performance-wise, Phil is a regular on the Solo Sundays series at Stage Werx, and has performed at The Marsh, Starline Social Club, and Freight & Salvage. He’s a producer on two podcasts for W. Kamau Bell, including Kamau Right Now! and Politically Re-Active.
Liz Callahan doesn’t plan on quitting her day job as an executive coach, and she’s happy to be using her skills as a front-of-the-room trainer to (hopefully) entertain. She and her sister, Ellen Jay, have been looking for projects to collaborate on for decades. Found one! Many thanks to Jeanne Haynes for her expertise, enthusiasm, support, and gift of laughter.
David Hirata is the writer/performer of two shows that ran at The Marsh, “Kanji by Starlight” (1997) and “Magic Holiday” (2007). He has also created theatrical magic pieces for the Exploratorium, the Yerba Buena Center, and Oakland Museum. He is delighted to be gracing the Marsh stage again.
