"Art transcends politics and brings people together"

Namaste, 

 

As a war veteran and former police officer I come to the film and theatre arts with a unique background.  They are my form of expression and catharsis.  I have a passion for acting and most importantly - making a difference!  To this end, I have founded the Warriors For Peace theatre company designed to bring veterans of different nations together to promote peace and healing through the works of Shakespeare.

UPCOMING EVENTS!

JULIUS CAESAR

 

November 30 - December 22

The Hudson Theatres, Hollywood, CA

Warriors For Peace will be producing a stage production of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.  Our exciting production will be in a modern war setting with gender bending roles and a diverse cast comprised of military veterans and civilians. Directed by Ann Noble. 

There are three reasons we are embarking on this project:

1. A Collaboration of Military Veterans and Civilians

Julius Caesar, one of Shakespeare’s most revered works, is partly a story about war. Our country has been fighting wars for fifteen consecutive years now. We are casting this stage production partly with military veterans - actors who have experienced combat in our current conflicts. I don’t think this has been done with this play.  Our actors will bring a certain depth and understanding of the challenges and affects to the human psyche of those who have experienced the horrors of war.  Our production will be a collaboration of veterans and civilians. This partnership fits into our mission of using art to heal and bring people together.  Working with civilians is a critical component to the reintegration of our returning veterans into civilian society after returning from military service

 

2. Ethnic Diversity In Casting 

Our production will have have a very diverse cast and reflect modern society and the military in a way many productions have been deficient in. 

 

3. Gender Bending Roles

We are gender bending some of the main characters, including Marc Antony, one of the dominant figures in the play. In a time when there is a long over due push in the industry to have more female leads Julius Ceaser provides a perfect opportunity to present a women in the leading roles.
