The Crew of Women in Jeopardy!

Richard Pallaziol

Richard Pallaziol (Director) studied theatre at CSU Long Beach and the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco. As actor, director, dancer, and fight choreographer he has worked in over 400 shows from San Diego to Michigan. He has also lectured on prop construction, period style and Elizabethan textual analysis. He is the author of The Textbook of Theatrical Combat.

He is a proud member of the Valley Players board of directors, and hopes that many in the audience tonight will join us in the fun of putting on live, vibrant theatre in this glorious space.

Rhonda Bowen (Stage Manager/Set Designer/Scenery Painter)
stage-managed numerous Sonoma County productions “way-back-in-the-old-days,” and is enjoying getting back on that bicycle for Valley Players’ production of Women in Jeopardy. Additionally, she has the privilege of designing this set following those for Hardball and Farce of Habit earlier this season (both in which she also appeared on stage). Rhonda studied Theatre Arts, including Acting,  Stage Management, Set Design & Stagecraft at Santa Rosa Junior College, completing her B.A in Architecture at the University of California at Berkeley.

Lu Kenmonth (Technical Director/Lighting Design/Technician) is a 2nd grade teacher at an arts integration school in Napa. Lu has produced and directed five children’s musical theater productions including Disney’s Aladdin, The Jungle Book, and Annie. For years, she was actively involved at Dreamweavers’ community theater in Napa, and currently is a board member for Valley Players.

Krisi Pilkington Adams (Assistant Stage Manager/Sound Technician) recently returned to the stage as Maxie Suggs in Farce of Habit last February. Women in Jeopardy! marks her third tech production with Valley Players and what a marvelous experience it has been. She finds it gratifying to be part of a collaboration of talent, wit, intellect and natural ability. Thank you to the entire cast and especially to Richard and my Rhonda.

Paul Marciniak

Paul Marciniak (Set Builder/Stage Hand) became involved with Valley Players after their first performance.  He has been having a fun time building sets and working behind the scenes as a stage member ever since.  He is delighted to work with such a great and talented group.  Please come join us: you won’t be disappointed!

Keith Baldanza (Master Carpenter/Set Builder) first got his hands dirty building set pieces for the San Jose Repertory Theater oh-so-many moons ago. He was a driving force in the early days of the Dreamweavers Troupe and is proud to have contributed to nearly every Valley Players production since early 2018.
