ABOUT DIGITAL PROGRAMS

The Gallo Center has adopted the use of digital programs meant to be viewed on cell phones or other computer devices. This change has important public health, environmental and economic benefits: reducing close contacts between patrons and ushers, cutting our use of paper, and eliminating substantial printing costs. View the program only before shows begin or during intermissions. Please be considerate of other patrons and artists on stage by not viewing it during performances. Patrons who do not observe this courtesy and create distractions may be asked to leave. Thank you.

WHY YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS

The Gallo Center for the Arts is a non-profit performing arts center with a deep commitment to enriching the people and communities of California’s vast San Joaquin Valley. From the scintillating performances of its wonderful resident companies, to the great variety of world-class entertainment presented by the Center each season, to robust arts education programs for the region’s youth, this is where the magic happens.

From the beginning, the Center’s mission has been clearly defined: to provide an inspirational civic gathering place where regional, national, and international cultural activities illuminate, educate, and entertain. Since revenue from ticket sales and facility rentals only covers a portion of the costs associated with fulfilling this mission, the Center is dependent on the generous annual financial support from donors and program sponsors within our community.

PROGRAM NOTES

A NOTE FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Fourteen years have passed since I received a phone call from Lynn Dickerson inviting me to discuss taking a position at the Gallo Center. I had been retired for only one year after a 40 year career at Modesto Junior College, and Lynn was looking for someone to direct the Arts Education program at the Center. The volunteer position seemed like a good fit, so I embarked on a journey of hosting and promoting an annual season of shows that brought thousands of students to the Gallo Center. Along the way we created an anti-bullying show of our own, with local actors that toured and performed in schools throughout Stanislaus County and beyond.

The first fully staged production that I presented at the Center was Children of the Dust Bowl . The show was a success and it led to other productions that were copresented with area theatre programs - Modesto Junior College, Merced Playhouse, California State University –Stanislaus, and Prospect Theater Project. These shows presented opportunities for local actors, designers, builders, costumers, and stage managers. The productions were strongly supported by our community audience members. Our first solo production was A Christmas Memory , the musical. This in turn led to the creation of the Gallo Center Repertory Company. I traded in my Arts Education hat at this time to take on the role of Artistic Director for our new company. I am filled with wonderful memories of the plays, the actors, and the production teams I interacted with as a producer, actor, and director. Thank you Lynn for giving me a great second act in life. I also want to thank all my colleagues at the Center

who have been so supportive: Doug Hosner, Al Poulus, Cortney Hurst, Mallory Mitchell, Thomas Garcia, Jeremiah Lewis, Dustin Venicombe, Veronica Caballero, Ryan Foy, Chad Hilligus, plus all of the Front of House team and innumerable volunteer ushers.

I am stepping down as Artistic Director and passing the baton to the capable hands of Ryan Foy. I look forward to many exciting seasons for the Gallo Center Repertory Company. While I am saying farewell to this position, I am not saying good-bye. I will be back next season directing the classic play Born Yesterday for GCRC. One final thing, everything I have achieved in my adult life has been because three incredible women have stood with me, encouraged me and loved me. Thank you Linda, Barbara and Suzanne.

A NOTE FROM THE CREATORS

During the height of the pandemic, many theatre companies presented their works online via Zoom, often with plays performed by actors in different locations. That got our wheels spinning; that Gallo Center Repertory Company (GCRC) could do the same thing with some old radio scripts. After exploring the idea, we chose to do something a little different. Rather than Zoom, we recorded our individual actors in front of a green screen speaking only their lines. We then brought the actors together digitally with the appropriate background settings to create a unique media piece. The first “Virtual Theatre” story we told was The Fall of the House of Usher . It was fun, spooky, and entertaining.

After the pandemic lessened, GCRC wanted to return to Usher; but this time include other Poe stories and poems, and present them as a staged radio drama. However, we again pushed the envelope and have instead created a world-premiere, multimedia presentation of Twisted Tales of Edgar Allan Poe . The show you are about to see will present our company acting out the stories accompanied by visual imagery, video, music, poetry, and dance. This original project has given us the opportunity to work with some of the most talented artists in our area.

Edgar Allan Poe’s work allows us to explore not only the dark, but the light as well, and all of the hope and despair therein. Through his madness we can reflect on what is, what was, and perhaps what might be. Keep watch for subtle “Easter Eggs” in some of the video clips projected during the show. For example, when you first came into the theater, did the on-screen image of Poe blink his eyes, or was that just your imagination? We hope you enjoy these tales of the macabre. And so we shall end with the immortal words of Edgar Allan Poe: “I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity. I have absolutely no desire to fit in.”

-Jim Johnson, Wes Page, Jewel Whitaker & Lori Bryhni

Dylan Bargas has been working within the theatre arts for many years. His acting journey started his freshmen year of high school in Oregon, with the role of the Grinch in a Christmas play. In his last two years of high school, he was a part of an a capella choir, where his love for singing began. He attended Modesto Junior College where he studied acting. He has previously appeared on the Gallo Center stage in MPA’s Bye Bye Birdie and MJC/ GCRC’s Our Town , and most recently GCRC’s Of Mice and Men. Other roles include Snout in A Midsummer Night’s Dream , a Weasel in MJC’s Wind in the Willows , Barthog in Prospect Theatre Project’s A True Fairy Tale , and even performing in Prospect Theatre Project’s Radio Cavalcade. Dylan takes his acting off stage when he dresses up as The Joker for events and fundraisers. On his own time, he practices music and singing, and makes short films. He would like to thank his mother, sister, and his close friends for supporting him throughout the years.

Cara Cavanaugh is a senior at Pitman High School. This is Cara’s first “mad” performance outside her regular Black Box Studio. She’s excited to be here; though, she barely knew what she got herself into. She has always had a love for Fine Arts and is directing an upcoming production of The Plot, Like Gravy, Thickens coming this May. She has a knack for using reusable and found items in her showcases; she’ll see a hay bale in the middle of a field and say, “That’s a good one, I’ll use it in my show.”

Stephen Daly is honored to make his second appearance with Gallo Center Repertory Company in its production of Twisted Tales of Edgar Allan Poe . He’s been in the foothills theater community for over twenty years appearing in

CAST BIOS

productions at Sierra Repertory Theatre, Murphys Creek Theatre, Fourth Wall Entertainment Troupe, Stage 3, Prospect Theater Project and Shakespeare on the Vine. Stephen received his MFA in Theater from Pennsylvania State University in 1989. Before moving to the foothills, he appeared at Center Stage in Walnut Creek, Magic Theatre in San Francisco, and Three Rivers Shakespeare in Pittsburgh, PA, to name a few.

Michael Esquibel is excited and grateful to be a part of the Poe cast. He was last seen onstage at the Gallo Center as Mr. Gilmer in To Kill a Mockingbird and as Charlie Martin in On Golden Pond . Prior to that, he was in Holes as the Sheriff and several other supporting roles. Michael is originally from San Diego and studied theater arts in Santa Cruz right before the end of the millennium. He has acted in community theater in San Diego at the Fault Line Theater and at the Adams Avenue Playhouse in 2003-2005. He performed at Playhouse Merced as Rod in Avenue Q (2017) and as Dr. Madden in Next to Normal (2018). Michael would like to thank Joy, his amazing wife and his three wonderful children Xavier, Alexander, and Elena for their ongoing support.

Quinn Gagos is very grateful for the opportunity to perform once again after an accidental 3 year hiatus from the stage. She began her dance training at the age of three with Valley Oak School of Dance in Oakdale. She continued to train in ballet, jazz, and tap, with some theater sprinkled in, until graduating from Oakdale High School. Other training includes as an artist with Central West Ballet, Juline School of Dance’s CCSDC, and Ballet San Jose ABT Summer Conservatory. She continued her dance training at The George Washington University

with a major shift to post-modern dance, improvisation, and choreography. Her favorite project was a duet she choreographed and performed in which challenged the dancers to adapt in real-time to five unique settings: dance studio, University Courtyard, lawn in front of the Lincoln Memorial, a drained fountain at the Smithsonian, and the National Mall with the Capitol Building as a backdrop. Other university credits include Rehearsal Director for Ann Carlson, Stage Manager for the Dance Department Spring Show, and casting in guest artist pieces by Anton Ovchinnikov and Erica Rebollar. She graduated from GWU with a BA in Psychology and minors in Dance and Art History. Since returning to the Central Valley, she has been enjoying her employment at the Gallo Center for the Arts, relaunching and running Earthians Care, and being involved with Prospect Theatre Project.

Mikaela Heisler being the rather discombobulated individual that she is, is rather confused as to how she ended up performing here at GCRC, but is absolutely delighted that the whirlwind of life brought her the amazing opportunity to be super duper spooky onstage. Apparently following your passions can lead to all sorts of interesting experiences, whether that be devolving into the madness of Edgar Allan Poe in theatre, or attempting to teach English to manic 12-year-olds in Italy. Some of the recent roles she is most thankful to have played include Sister James in Doubt at Playhouse Merced, Annie Cannon in Silent Sky , Rosie Probert in Under Milkwood , and Hephaestus in Prometheus Bound at CSU Stanislaus. Additionally, she holds passion for linguistics, video editing, doodling, cat corraling, stagecraft, creepy claymation, traveling, and building frankly ridiculously large holes in Minecraft.

Ariel Linn Hicks is honored to reprise her role portraying Madeline Usher from a virtual video a few years ago. Having performed on stage, behind the microphone and in front of the camera, Ariel enjoys bringing characters to life with her unique take, whether playing a killer, creature or even Captain Kirk. Ariel thanks Gallo Center Repertory Company for letting her be a part of The Twisted Tales of Edgar Allan Poe.

Erin Isaacs is very happy and humbled to be able to return to the Gallo stage; especially with such a talented group of folks! A local actor, director and stage manager, Erin received her AAT from MJC in 2019 and has recently returned to Modesto after having moved away for about a year. When not stage managing, or working behind the scenes, you may have been able to catch her IN a performance from time to time; she has worked with Prospect Theater Project, Centerstage Conservatory, Merced Shakespearefest and MJC. Some of Erin’s favorite roles include: Anne De Burg in Miss Bennet ; Christmas at Pemberley (PTP), Friar Lawrence in An all women Romeo and Juliet (CSC), Ivy Westin in August: Osage County (MJC), and Mrs. Soames in Our Town (MJC/GCRC).

Dean Medek is excited to be a part of this unique ensemble production. Dean has performed several other roles at the Gallo Center, including George Bailey in It’s a Wonderful Life , Bob Crachit in A Christmas Carol , Mr. MacAfee in Bye, Bye Birdie , and Editor Webb in Our Town . He has also played lead and supporting roles at Modesto Junior College, including Prospero in The Tempest and Archdeacon Frollo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Dean retired last year after 32 years as a high school

mathematics teacher. He is using his time now to expand his drama resume, especially in film. Dean wishes to thank the directing team for their expertise and diligence. Most of all, he wants to thank his wife, Cheryl, and their three daughters for their support during this production.

Edgar Allan Poe was an American writer, poet, editor, and literary critic who is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre. He is widely regarded as a central figure of Romanticism in the United States, and of American literature. He was one of the country’s earliest practitioners of the short story, and is considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre, as well as a significant contributor to the emerging genre of science fiction. He is the first wellknown American writer to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career.

Poe was born in Boston, the second child of actors David and Elizabeth “Eliza” Poe. His father abandoned the family in 1810, and when his mother died the following year, Poe was taken in by John and Frances Allan of Richmond, Virginia. They never formally adopted him, but he was with them well into young adulthood. He attended the University of Virginia but left after a year due to lack of money. He quarreled with John Allan over the funds for his education, and his gambling debts. In 1827, having enlisted in the United States Army under an assumed

name, he published his first collection, Tamerlane and Other Poems , credited only to “a Bostonian”. Poe and Allan reached a temporary rapprochement after the death of Allan’s wife in 1829. Poe later failed as an officer cadet at West Point, declared a firm wish to be a poet and writer, and parted ways with Allan.

Poe switched his focus to prose, and spent the next several years working for literary journals and periodicals, becoming known for his own style of literary criticism. His work forced him to move among several cities, including Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City. In 1836, he married his 13-year-old cousin, Virginia Clemm, but she died of tuberculosis in 1847. In January 1845, he published his poem “The Raven” to instant success. He planned for years to produce his own journal The Penn (later renamed The Stylus ), but before it could be produced, he died in Baltimore on October 7, 1849, aged 40, under mysterious circumstances. The cause of his death remains unknown, and has been variously attributed to many causes including disease, alcoholism, substance abuse, and suicide.

Poe and his works influenced literature around the world, as well as specialized fields such as cosmology and cryptography. He and his work appear throughout popular culture in literature, music, films, and television. A number of his homes are dedicated museums. The Mystery Writers of America present an annual Edgar Award for distinguished work in the mystery genre.
