We have completed PBDG auditions, and I’m honored to introduce you to Baily Hopkins, who will be playing the title role in Pinball Donut Girl. Not only is she a terrific actor and musician, she is a crack skeeball player too.
Baily joins cast members Brian J. Paterson as Matt,
Scott Mathison as Jack,
and of course, the intergalatic and amazing Jane Wiedlin.
The crazy talented Brian J. Patterson, who stars as Matt in Pinball Donut Girl, is on stage now in the world premiere of Heart of a Soldier.

The opera is based on the story of Rick Rescorla, hero of September 11.
Rescorla in Vietnam, 1965
The story of Rescorla’s heroism during the World Trade Center attacks is the stuff of opera, a hypertheatrical medium that holds a magnifying mirror up to nature. So it’s not entirely surprising that Rescorla’s story will materialize on the stage of the San Francisco Opera in the form of “Heart of a Soldier” beginning on Saturday, the eve of the 10th anniversary of the attacks.
