BROADWAY WORLD (SAN FRANCISCO) -- Steve Ortiz received a Bachelor of Arts in theatre from San Francisco State University and attended the British American Drama Academy Graduate program in London. He has worked with the Asian American Theater Company, African American Shakespeare Company, San Francisco Theatre Company, Thick Description, Luminarias, Darvag Theater, Teatro de la Esperanza, Teatro Campesino, Teatro Sabor and Teatro Vagon. Mr. Ortiz would like to give a shout out to Each One Reach One whose outreach program brings the skills of playwriting to at-risk youth in the Bay Area’s detention centers.

Elaina Garrity is thrilled to make her Central Works debut. She is a Bay Area native from a Mexican-Irish family, graduated SFSU with honors, and focuses most of her time on film and commercial work. She was most recently seen on Lifetime in Psycho Brother In-Law, Graton Resorts commercials and more tech industrials than she can count. The return to stage is sweet, sacred and necessary. Favorite stage roles include A Lie of the Mind and Buried Child, both at The Magic Theater, and References to Salvador Dalí at SFSU.
