Bay Area Theatre Lovers Pages

Welcome to Bay Area Theatre Lovers!

I'm Rick Haffner - MFA. On behalf of myself and our amazing organizers and members, I welcome you!

A long-time professional actor, director, vocalist and clown, LIVE Performance and sharing Theatre with others is my passion. I currently serve as an IATSE usher and technician for Team San Jose as well as a private ESL teacher and voice and speech coach. I specialize in accent reduction and vocal production.

Meet up with other FUN people in the South Bay and the greater SF Bay Area who enjoy LIVE theatre! Feel free to contact me if you would like to suggest, publicize or plan a meetup for a show!

We attend Broadway Touring Shows in San Jose and SF, SJ Stage Company, City Lights Theatre Company, Theatreworks, Opera San Jose, Berkeley Rep, SF Shakes, circus, magic and comedy shows and various amateur & school performances... Our organizers seek out the best and the brightest wherever we can find them!

I am also a Laughter Yoga leader and enthusiast and enjoy planning Laugh Mobs in public places to help spread JOY and laughter throughout the Sillycon Valley! It's a great way to relieve stress, breathe deeply, build teams and community, meditate and participate in a FUN, heart healthy, low impact, ever so slightly aerobic, exercise. Join us!

As an avid LIVE theatre aficionado I use this group to promote shows performed all over the greater Bay Area... If your company would like to become an official sponsor, let me know. Donations are always gratefully accepted to keep this group going and growing...

Hope to see YOU at a theatre soon!

Our group's unofficial sponsor is The California Theatre Center (CTC) in Sunnyvale. I served as the Marketing, PR and Tour Director here for over 15 years and still consult there from time to time.

About CTC: (

CTC is a professional, not-for-profit, repertory theatre based in Sunnyvale... 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 Theater during June and July.

CTC has toured all over the world and has won numerous awards and honors. The company also offers an outstanding Education program for children of all ages taught by the professional actors in the company.

CTC can provide actors, entertainers, directors, workshops, shows and performances for just about any kind of event and venue. I also have a vast network of friends who perform... if I can't do it, I probably know someone who can! Feel free to contact me...
