Lewis was last seen onstage at Theatre West as Felix in The Odd Couple. His performance experience runs the gamut from Shakespeare, musicals, improv, ballets, Tahitian drumming, commercials, and some very small parts in some very bad and/or obscure movies. Lewis was a member of Batucaje, an Afro-Brazilian dance and music ensemble based in San Francisco and was a member of a Berkeley-based improv and mime troupe. Locally, Lewis has directed and performed in “A Tour to Die For” for several years, as well as a 1940’s-era live radio presentation of, “It’s a Wonderful Life”. He also teaches classes in improv and Tahitian drumming at Oregon Coast Community College. Lewis would like to thank Bonnie and Alice for getting him back onstage!
