Introducing Juliana–A New Beloved!

We’re just pleased as punch to introduce our newest ensemble member, Juliana Frick!

Juliana will be embodying the Human, for whom the animals worked so diligently when the world was so new-and-all; the Little God Nquing; one-half of the rudest Rhinoceros residing near the Red Sea; and a host of other roles that we’re saving to surprise you with this summer!

Our first order of business will be to induct both Juliana and Marlene into our eccentric ensemble… I can’t say whether or not there are any elaborate induction rituals… but I can say that we’re all excited to start playing together.

You can read more about Juliana as well as her exploits and endeavors with Hungry Bird Theater, who will be performing Get No Place Fast this July as part of “Raw Materials Program 3” at the Fury Factory Festival of Ensemble Theater this July 14 & 15 at NOH Space in San Francisco.

Hope to see you there!

Announcing our newest Beloved!

We’re thrilled to announce the newest member of our troupe of players, the wonderful Marlene Yarosh.

Marlene Yarosh

Marlene has performed and trained with both Joan and Rebecca through foolsFURY, and we’re delighted for her to join our merry band for our summer tour.

Marlene will be christened by the ensemble with her stage name in due time. She’ll be taking on the roles originated by Kittens Mittens (Sabrina Wenske). Of course Kittens’ performance is inimitable, so Marlene will put her own spin on it.

Meanwhile, the talented Sabrina will be performing in other shows around the Bay Area, and helping our friends at Ragged Wing Ensemble open their new performance space in downtown Oakland, the Flight Deck!

Gearing up for a FluxWagon summer

Hello world!

It’s true, O Best Beloved will be coming to a public space near you, aboard the inimitable FluxWagon. She’s a beaut! Or she will be, thanks to a generous CASH Grant from Theatre Bay Area, and the design savvy of our very own Joan Howard.

Stay tuned for tour dates and locations! We’ll post them here, and The Professor, PhD is likely to spread the word to the Twitterati.
