Mendocino Art Center's Diamond Jubilee Dinner

Steven JordanSTEVEN JORDAN (Raconteur) has appeared in 7 plays these past five years at the Mendocino Theatre Company at the Art Center. While still in high school, Steve appeared in some of the first plays produced at the Mendocino Art Center. After graduating from Mendocino High School, he attended Chico State University where he participated in several university theatre and opera productions prior to graduation.

His opera production experience led to stage direction and, eventually, to work as an assistant director and stage manager at the San Francisco Opera. This was followed by assignments at the Philadelphia Opera, San Diego Opera and Central City Opera. In addition, Steve has directed over 40 opera productions in regional theatres including Nevada Opera, San Diego Opera Center, San Francisco Opera's Adler's Program and Marin Opera. He also directed a one-act opera, Pergolesi's La Serva Padrona, for the Mendocino Music Festival in 2002. During Summer 2016 he performed the role of Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music with the Gloriana Musical Theatre in Fort Bragg.

This past June he participated in the annual Redwoods Opera Workshop held in Mendocino presented by Elizabeth Vrenios. The workshop specifically targets aspiring opera singers who are beginning their operatic careers where he coached, taught acting and directed performance scenes. And, for the past several years, Steve has also performed annually at the Crown Hall Crab Feed held in Mendocino, entertaining and delighting audiences with his uniquely-styled, one-person comedy show.

The Mendocino Art Center is a very special place, located in a stunning, rural location, overlooking a rugged expanse of the Pacific Ocean, 150 miles north of San Francisco. It has been a haven for artists since 1959, when founders Bill and Jennie Zacha first realized the potential of this unique community as an artists' colony.

Mendocino Art Center:
Thriving as an educational destination
for artists and art lovers.
