Introducing David Zarka of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged

Dave is glad to be back on stage at IT!
Dave Zarka   Growing up in San Jose, California, as the middle child among a family of seven siblings, Dave Zarka honed his acting skills at an early age.  In theaters in the Bay Area, he performed a number of roles, including Nathan Detroit in Guys and Dolls, Snoopy in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” and Henry II in The Lion in Winter.  Then, life happened, and he married his wife, Deb; and they moved to the Greater Sacramento area, where they raised two daughters, Elaina and Ana, and he established a civil law practice.  So, it was that after taking up residence in El Dorado County, and on the urging of Deb, Dave terminated his theatrical hiatus and joined Imagination Theater’s 2015 season, landing the role of Sir Galahad in Spamalot.  Since then, he portrayed Bert in IT’s 2015 Christmas season production of Mary Poppins.  Having himself read at least two books of the Bard of Avon, Dave is thankful for the chance to tread the boards with his fellow talented cast mates in this production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged opens August 12 and runs through August 28.  Tickets are available online, by phone (1-800-838-3006), or at the door.
