Terence J. Burke as Palooka

Thanks for choosing to acknowledge new local theater. The San Diego festival
experience has been a thespian's exaltation through the years. From Cocteau's
Wedding on the Eiffel Tower
to last year's
Taxco Mixto and Falling from the Stars.
From Schnitzler's His Big Scene -- now to Goldfinger's His Last Fight. Excelsior!

Sara Moneymaker

Reed Willard
as Male Boxer

Since his move from Virginia not quite two years ago, Reed has acted in several local productions including The Star-Spangled Girl, Breast Men (The Real Theater), Psychopathia Sexualis (Compass Theatre), and Away from the Past (San Diego Therapist Convention on Sexual Abuse and Trauma).  Reed has played character roles in student films, independent shorts and features; and appeared as a featured extra on TV shows (Monk, The Ex-List) and major Hollywood films (The Outside, The Ugly Truth, and My Son, My Son What Have Ye Done).  Reed is very excited to be a part of this year's New Perspective Festival.
