Waiting for Godot: Meet the Cast

Ronald Feichtmeir (Estragon) has been doing theatre since middle school, acting in a children's theatre production where he played a frantic White Rabbit. He eventually got himself to college, where he studied acting for an extra year at the University of California Santa Cruz, in a certificate program there. During his undergraduate years there he also acted in both department productions, and in an independently student run, multi-cultural theatre group called Rainbow Theater at Stevenson college. More recently he's acted locally on the peninsula. Waiting for Godot will be his fourth show with director Jeanie Smith.

Jim Johnson (Vladimir) last appeared at the Dragon in Becky's New Car.  He also appeared in Sideman and Marvin's Room.  He has also been in many shows at the Pear Theatre, including Bach at Leipzig, The Illusion, Cherry Orchard, and The Tempest.  He was most recently seen at the Pear in Super Villain.

Robert Sean Campbell (Lucky) is a graduate of The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and Santa Clara University, where he was the 2007 recipient of the William H. Leahy Award. In addition to acting for the stage and on camera, he is co-owner of Diamond in the Rough Films located in San Jose, CA. Select theatre credits include: Davey/David Quinn – The Voice of the Prairie, Septimus Hodge – Arcadia, Iago - Othello, Romeo – Romeo and Juliet, Brick – Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Billy – The Real Thing, Trofimov – The Cherry Orchard, Jake Quinn, et al – Stones in His Pockets, Merritt, et al – Eat the Runt, George Tesman – Hedda Gabler, Villars – Complete Female Stage Beauty, Joe Pitt – Angels in America Part One, George Gibbs – Our Town, Adam – The Shape of Things, Jesus – The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, Young Zeke Rowen – The Kentucky Cycle, and Coriolanus – Coriolanus.

Michael Champlin (Pozzo) is a South Bay actor and director who has been part of a few dozen productions since moving to the Bay Area just over ten years ago. It's been a few years since he's been part of a Dragon production, and it's thrilling to be part of this very exciting production of Waiting for Godot, as he will get to share the stage for the first time with his son, Jack. Much love to his wife Katie and youngest son, Henry. 

Jack Champlin (Boy) is making his Dragon debut after previously having performed for PYT in Charlotte's Web and Puss in Boots. When not on the stage, Jack can be found chasing Pokemon up and down the peninsula. Special thanks to Mommy, Daddy, Dylan and Henry!
