From the program for Radium Girls:
Tom Kobolak (Director) has been active in community theatre since the very early ‘80s. In directing tonight’s story of the radium dial painters, Tom continues to indulge his undeniable taste for the dark side, having previously directed Agnes of God, and prior to that, Romeo & Juliet. Occasionally he may be found hunched over the sound equipment, searching for effects that are sometimes dark but often cheerful as well. He was last on stage last season, loving every moment, in The Dining Room. Many kudos to a wonderful cast and crew and many thanks, as always, to Barbara.
From the program for The Dining Room:
Client, Howard, Psychiatrist, Ted, Paul, Ben, Chris, Jim, Dick, and Guest
TOM KOBOLAK, when not in his basement with his beloved bass guitars, has been either directing Agnes of God, or hunched over the sound equipment up in the stage manager’s booth behind you all, or off singing and dancing in musicals with Suzart Productions. He was last on the Ron Maslin Playhouse stage as Vincentio, the perplexed father of the groom in The Taming of the Shrew. He is immensely pleased to plunge into Mr. Gurney’s fine play with such talented and creative colleagues. Do enjoy the show, and keep the shiny side up.
From the program for Agnes of God
TOM KOBOLAK (Director) has been active in community theatre since the early 80’s, primarily as an actor, director and administrator, Tom last directed Romeo & Juliet for the 2011-2012 KT season. He is thrilled to work with the numerous people on stage and off who have tackled this fine and complex play with such fierce and unbending will. Enjoy your miracles, everyone, and give thought to the great ladies in the black and swirling robes.
From the program for Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun:
TOM KOBOLAK (Director) has been active in the community theatre as an actor, director and administrator since the early ‘80’s. For Kanata Theatre, he last directed Brian Friel’s Irish drama Dancing at Lughnasa and he was last seen on stage as Screamin’ John in 2004’s Rock and Roll. An addicted motorcyclist, he waits patiently (?) for clear pavement, sunshine and much warmer weather.
From the program for Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks:
TOM KOBOLAK (Michael Minetti) has been active in community theatre in Nepean and Kanata since the early ‘80’s, primarily as an actor, director and administrator. Recently, he directed Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun, and prior to that, Brian Friel’s Irish drama, Dancing at Lughnasa. Onstage, he has tended to play characters who dwell in interesting locations, such as a sewerman living deep in the Paris underground, or a dead rock’n’roll idol residing in a graveyard in Mushaboom, Nova Scotia. He has also been active with the Savoy Society, most recently as a long haired, cutthroat pirate in Pirates of Penzance.
Tom is grateful to all for the chance to be in this evening’s heartfelt play about the roads we take, and the steps we learn, to rediscover our humanity. Lastly, as an obsessed motorcyclist, he awaits the end of another hideous winter with bated breath.
