What we're about
Hi there - and Welcome to our Meetup group!
My name is Rick Haffner... a long-time South Bay, professional actor, director, vocalist and clown. I have a passion for both Film and live Theatre! - Be sure to check out our LIVE theatregoing group -
Bay Area Theatre Lovers - http://theater.meetup.com/173/ ) - if that interests you!
I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting & Directing many years ago and am a Screen Actor's Guild/AFTRA member. I love to attend all kinds of movies and enjoy sharing my knowledge of on camera acting, film history and techniques, literature, and any "insider information" I may know, with others.
Join us and Meetup with other FUN South Bay Movie Lovers of all ages. Let's share some great films, and enjoy carpools, camaraderie, dinners, drinks, conversations and lively discussions.
Let me know if you would like to become an Assistant Group Organizer (AO) and you can schedule Meetups yourself, for any films you'd like to see! Or you can simply suggest Meetups and post ideas and messages on the Message Boards.
Feel free to post last minute messages like: "I have the day or evening off today and would like to see "_________ (fill in the movie title)____" or simply offer "Does anybody want to join me for a movie at or in "_____(name a specific theatre or city)___" today?
I welcome your feedback and encourage your active participation!
Hope to meetup with YOU at a screening or a theatre soon...
Carpe Diem & Namaste...
FYI - I can provide entertainment for you or your company and/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!
I am also a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader - and coach business people and executives in ESL/ Accent Reduction as well as Public Speaking, acting and singing. Feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's a little about the theatre company whom I have worked with for over 20 years - 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. http://www.ctcinc.org
