Vallejo Shakespeare in the Park
Cate Regan-Muzaffar earned her BFA in Theatre with an emphasis in Acting from Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan. Shortly there after she transported her life to the great south-west. While in Prescott Arizona, she worked with the Prescott Fine Arts Association and the Arizona Shakespeare Company. In 2007 she embarked on a new adventure to the Bay Area, where she worked through the East Bay and San Francisco. Cate is eternally grateful to have found a creative home in Vallejo Shakespeare in the Park. In her mind there is nothing better than building a show, and moving it to the people.
Founded: Vallejo Shakespeare in the Park is an annual play festival, where residents of all ages and economic backgrounds can come together for free professional outdoor theater in Vallejo, Martinez and Oakland. Established in 2010 by Vallejo resident Dalia Vidor, Vallejo Shakespeare in the Park produces one free live Shakespearean production each summer presented in an outdoor setting. Our aim is to provide an inspiring and educational live theater experience for our audience through intensive preparation and high quality performance and broaden horizons and enrich the lives of local residents through a free classical outdoor theater performance. We also provide professional performance opportunities to Bay Area actors through non-traditional casting. Our casts are made up of multi-ethnic actors of various backgrounds and experience levels from around the Bay Area. Our productions reflect the community in which they are performed and help our audience connect to classical theater with exciting contemporary staging. Vallejo Shakespeare in the Park is fiscally sponsored by the Greater Vallejo Recreation District (GVRD). We believe the arts are an important part of the fabric of a community and we want to do our part to ensure a thriving arts environment and help raise the value of the arts as a public good. We present a “bare-bones” production, concentrating on the actor’s performances and honest storytelling, with minimal set and modern dress.
