Kate Brolan is an actor, voice artist and writer. She is anecdotal evidence for “Variety is the spice of life”. A former attorney, non-profit manager, and veteran restaurateur in San Francisco, Kate thrives in people-centered ventures. Kate describes her first moment on stage as transformative, healing and like fitting into a comfortable old sweatshirt.
When not storming the stage, chatting-up the mic, or memorizing another monologue, she is dancing, hiking, visiting grandkids, or at the pickleball court with her wife, Sydney.
Her favorite quote: "When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life."

David is from El Paso Texas. He has an MFA in Acting from the Academy of Art University. Informally David has learned from his various careers as a paralegal, staff accountant and, insurance agent. I have learned from my family, siblings, friends and, the tribe. My journey through all this has had a profound influence in my acting or as I call it living truthfully in imaginary circumstances. It has influenced each and every nook and cranny of the characters I play and create in my writing. I’m very grateful for this journey. I am fortunate as well and for this reason, I love giving back when I can. I have dedicated the past eighteen years of
my life volunteering. I have served on professional and non-profit boards as well as hosted and worked fundraisers to
benefit local underfunded Bay Area non-profits doing good work helping the hungry, the marginalized, seniors, pet adoption, and LGBT+ youth.
It’s all about balance.
