Roberta Feldner Stuart will read from We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler. She is a graduate of The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, NYC, where she trained in stage technique, voice, and dance movement, and has studied with many legendary coaches in film, television and voice-over technique. Her professional membership in SAG/AFTRA, AGVA, EQUITY, and ASCAP is evidence of her engagement and experience in all professional aspects of the entertainment field. Over the course of Stuart’s multi-faceted career, she has performed on stage Off Broadway in New York and in Los Angeles, and appeared in numerous television performances, commercials, and voice-over assignments. She was featured in Brian De Palma’s film The Fury and in many made-for-television Movies of the Week. Stuart produced, directed, and hosted the talk show “All About Real Estate” for KIEV 870AM in Los Angeles, pairing her broadcasting experience with her second profession as a California Realtor which, after twenty-five years, she continues to enjoy as an Associate with Realty World Camelot.
Although semi-retired, she adheres to the old adage, “Ya can’t hit a moving target!” In the spirit of moving forward, Stuart recently formed The Well Seasoned Players, a small but growing group of mature actors whose first performance of her short one-act play, “Samantha Desire,” will debut at the Davis Senior Center on December 19. Their group motto is, “Have play, will perform just about anywhere!” Find more information in the Davis Senior Center newsletter. Stuart loves Stories On Stage Davis and is pleased to be reading in December.
