Hi there - and Welcome to our Meetup group!

My name is Rick Haffner... a long-time South Bay, professional actor, director, vocalist and clown. LIVE Theatre is my passion!

I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting & Directing many years ago and enjoy sharing my knowledge of theatre history, literature, and any "insider information" I may know, with others.

Join us and Meetup with other FUN people in the South Bay and the greater SF Bay Area who enjoy LIVE theatre! Let's share some great shows, and enjoy carpools, groups discounts, backstage tours, talk-backs, dinners, drinks, conversations, intermissions, lively discussions and help to promote and support live theatre.

We Meetup for Broadway Touring Shows, SJ Rep, SJ Stage Company, California Theatre Center (CTC), City Lights, Theatreworks, Berkeley Rep, Shakespeare Santa Cruz, SF Shakes, and various professional, amateur & school performances... I seek out the best and the brightest wherever I can find it!

As an avid LIVE theatre aficionado I use this group to promote shows performed all over the greater Bay Area that I have already seen and loved - or can't wait to see!

Let me know if you would like to become an assistant group organizer and you can schedule Meetups yourself, for any show or company you are involved with, or you'd like to see or support!

Hope to see YOU at a theatre soon!


Carpe Diem & Namaste...

FYI - I can provide or refer you to actors, entertainers, magicians, jugglers, stilt-walkers, directors, workshop leaders, shows and performances for just about any kind of event and venue. I have a vast network of friends who perform and entertain... if I can't do it, I probably know someone who can!


About California Theatre Center (CTC) in Sunnyvale:

I served as a company member and Marketing Director here for over 17 years. CTC is a professional, not-for-profit, repertory theatre based at The Sunnyvale Theatre... the company employs a talented and versatile, full-time acting company which performs a rich repertory of hour-long plays for Young Audiences during the traditional school year (all over the West Coast!) and full-length plays for adults and families (CTC Summer Rep) at the The Sunnyvale Community Center on Remington Drive during June and July.

CTC has toured all over the world and has won numerous awards and honors. I got to travel and perform in Fiji, New Zealand and The Cook Islands with CTC! The company also offers an outstanding Education program for children of all ages in several South Bay locations taught by the professional actors in the company. www.ctcinc.org
