WRITTEN BY CELESTE BEDFORD WALKER
OPENING WEEKEND IS
APRIL 28TH & 29TH
In honor of the Opening Weekend for Camp Logan on April 28th & 29th and running though May 27th, the Robey Blog is featuring one character and actor every week as we count down to the opening weekend for Camp Logan. This "sound-off" will serve as a brief introduction, a kind of insight into the life of the soldier, written from the character's point of view by the actor embodying him in this production.
This week's Sound- Off is from Captain Zuelke:
Previously Jacob played Nicholas in THE RECKONING for the Robey, and Caliban in THE TEMPEST for Action! He also played Horatio in HAMLET at Theatre 150 in Ojai CA for director Jessica Kubzansky, and Guildenstern in Michael Michetti’s HAMLET at A Noise Within. He spent 2006-7 playing Patrick (“a soulful skinhead with a gorgeous singing voice” – nytheatre.com) in the contemporary Gilbert & Sullivan-style operetta THE BEASTLY BOMBING (over 70 performances in LA and NY, and LA Weekly’s Musical of the Year 2006). Additional LA theatre includes A SWEET DEAL, his own full-length solo show; as well as BEATRICE, the title role of PEER GYNT, DUBYA 2004, DUBYA 2000, CRAZYFACE, and Padraic Duffy’s TELL THE BEES and BEAVERQUEST!
Onstage in Seattle (his home town) he appeared in THE DUCHESS OF MALFI (as Ferdinand); SAINT JOAN and RELATIVE VALUES with Greek Active; A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM (Lysander) with Wooden O; and several of the original works of director Derek Horton (CAT-LIKE TREAD, PIMPIN). Sidney's additional plays include BENT (Horst) and THE NORMAL HEART (Felix) in Portland, Oregon; and A CHORUS LINE (Paul), THE GRAPES OF WRATH (Tom Joad), WEST SIDE STORY (Riff), and LA BOH»ME (singing Schaunard) in Bellingham, Washington.
Jacob sings (as a classically trained baritone fluent in Big Band and Rockabilly), writes (prose and dialogue, fiction and non-), composes music, arranges choral parts, and directs theatre and choral groups. He’s a regular performer in the Wig Out! cabaret; and also occasionally analyzes and helps to develop/produce new theatre scripts, the result of a two-year stint as Literary Director for Circle X Theatre Co. of Hollywood.
A life-long fan of the Seattle Mariners, Sidney would like to be known as the Ichiro of theatre.
