SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN: JULY 26-AUGUST 4, 2019

MEET THE CAST

Photos by Breslow Imaging

James Koponen, playing the role of “Don Lockwood”.   James spends his days constantly amazed at the amount of traffic in the Bay Area as he lethargically commutes to Mountain View, where he works as a front-end developer for Intuit. He spends his sparse amounts of free time running senseless miles, or studying French. When the weather is nice, he flies to Europe and wanders around taking far too many photos.   Interesting Life Moments:  While studying abroad years back, he auditioned for and was cast in a London College production of the “The Hothouse.” After completing his master’s degree in English, he taught some college English, but somewhat returned to the field of tech. Fortunately, he’s been able to write five performed murder mystery dinner shows, and a musical libretto as well.   Favorite past time:  Having gotten a taste of electric bikes in Sorrento, Italy, last year, he returned home and built his own bike, though his 70-mile commute prevents any daily rides to work.   Favorite past role:  A tie between Gaston in “Beauty and the Beast” and Bobby Child in “Crazy For You”.   Favorite scripture verse:  Corinthians 13:13. And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of these is love.   Favorite quote:  "We know what we are, but know not what we may be.”   Hamlet , Act IV, Scene 5
