K2: Meet the Cast

John Rutski (Producer / Harold) is thrilled to be working on the Dragon stage with his good friend Chuck as well as many of the crew members he has worked with in the past. Favorite roles include Benedick and Don John in Much Ado About Nothing, and Antipholus of Ephesus in The Comedy of Errors (Silicon Valley Shakespeare); Marc in Art (Northside Theatre Company); and Gogo in Waiting for Godot (Fully Committed Productions / Santa Clara Players). Directorial credits: Antigone, A Few Good Men, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (Broadway West Theatre Company); and Twelfth Night (Silicon Valley Shakespeare).

Chuck Phelps (Taylor) is thrilled and so very blessed in having the opportunity to debut alongside his old buddy John Rutski on the Dragon Theater stage. Our worlds collided in Waiting for Godot as Didi and Gogo, and a good 10 years later here we are again on K2 as Taylor and Harold. Favorite characters include Randle P. McMurphy in One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Colonel Nathan Jessep in A Few Good Men, both of which were performed on the stage of Broadway West…we miss you Broadway West! The most magical show had to be Silicon Valley Shakespeare’s The Imaginary Invalid, where he inhabited the character of Argan, playing opposite Doll Piccotto’s Toinette. Fun, fun, fun! Other Silicon Valley favorites include Witch #3 and The Porter in the Scottish play, a drunk Pedant on stage throughout Taming of the Shrew, and their recent production of Romeo and Juliet where he played the patriarch Capulet. Chuck would also like to thank everyone who supports live theater. Without you, we would literally not be able to do this.
