'Once Upon a Mattress' Marks Directorial Debut for Alum Faustino Cadiz

Friday, July 14, 2017

FAIRFIELD DAILY REPUBLIC -- Faustino Cadiz graduated from Vallejo’s Jesse Bethel High School, attended Solano Community College and was part of its now-defunct Actors Training Program. He graduated from San Francisco State University.

Doing theatre offers him the opportunity to spread his creative wings and bring on his own touches.

He traveled to Broadway earlier this year and saw “The Great Comet,” based on a 70-page slice of “War and Peace.” He was able to get on stage and toast the lead.

Cadiz wants to see the performing arts thrive in his hometown.

“There’s so much potential here,” he said.
