Introducing Tom Loeprich from The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged

Tom Loeprch joins IT! for another comedic romp!
This is Tom's third show at Imagination Theater and he is thrilled to be a part of this wonderful theatre company here in our community!  Tom's previous IT! appearances include Reverend Arthur Humphrey in See How They Run and various roles in Spamalot.  He has performed many notable roles in regional and professional theatre productions all over including roles in Nicholas Nickleby, Oedipus Rex, Rhinoceros, Noises Off, and American Buffalo

When Peter Wolfe approached Tom about doing some Shakespeare, Tom was ecstatic.  Finally, a chance to bring some dignified and refined culture to our wonderful little area!  In order to reassure Peter that he wasn't simply some novice actor but an experienced interpreter of the great Bard's work, Tom listed his previous extensive Shakespeare roles: Claudio in Much Ado About Nothing, Tybalt in Romeo & Juliet, Lucio n Measure For Measure, Richmond in Richard III etc.. , Peter looked at him and then replied , "Can you fake barfing?"  The rest is history.   Tom holds an MFA in Acting from California State University, Fullerton and has taught Intro to Theatre and Beginning Acting courses at various campuses in the Los Rios Community College District.  In addition Tom and his family run a local bed & breakfast in historic Placerville. 

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.
