FOGG Theatre has lived in my heart from its very beginnings, and I have been consistently impressed with the people and the quality of work that comes out of those minds. I was lucky to meet Aimee Miles, one of the founders and Education Director, through one of her family members. I knew Aimee was […]
When I left the Bay Area for college a little over ten years ago, I had no idea what was in store. As a life-long performer, I planned on majoring in theatre and never imagined a life devoid of the arts. But as we all know, life is unpredictable. I soon found myself majoring in […]
George Bernard Shaw famously asserted, “you use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul”.
I’ve always loved that quote. Mostly because it speaks so poignantly to the role art plays in our lives. Regardless of the medium, art is the conduit by which we examine […]
What makes musical theatre so amazing? Everything! When I’m at the theatre, I’m not just seeing a story being told. I’m hearing it too, in lyrics and music, and watching it unfold in dance. A great musical transports me to another time and place, makes me think, and makes me feel like no other art […]
It’s Giving Tuesday! We wanted to give you, our loyal patrons, a small token of our appreciation for your continued support. Below you’ll find a brand new song from our new children’s musical Flocked Together: The Green Parrots of Telegraph Hill. We think you’ll love it as much as we do. Listen to […]
In reflecting on fear, hopelessness, and uncertainty over the past couple of weeks, I’m reminded of one conservatory student who quietly overcame his own fears, and let his art and his heart shine.
It was the final week before our second full-scale youth musical, We Are Monsters, and I was rounding up kids from the […]
I’ve been thinking a lot about bubbles. The Oxford-English Dictionary defines “bubble” as “A thin sphere of liquid enclosing air or another gas.” The San Francisco Bay Area is a bubble. 85.3% of voters in the County of San Francisco voted for Hillary Clinton. In San Mateo County, it was 76.3%. In Alameda County, it […]
Milestone 12: You, the FOGG Theatre community!
If a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound? No, it doesn’t. And similarly an amazing musical makes no impact without a supportive, receptive community. Big thanks to all of you for your excitement, your discernment, your hard work, your time, your energy, your generous financial gifts, your word […]
Not only did FOGG Theatre mount our first full length musical twice in 2015, we also hosted table reads of 6 other original musical projects! Yep, six.
It’s pretty amazing to see the world of musical theatre bursting with new work. The best part IOHO (in our humble opinion) is […]
Milestone 10: Youth Conservatory classes
You know what they say: perform for kids, and they’ll enjoy it for a night, but teach kids to perform, and they’ll enjoy it for a lifetime.
FOGG Theatre has been offering performing arts classes for nearly three years at Telegraph Hill Neighborhood Center (Tel-Hi for short), a community center […]
