"At four years old, Val Zvinyatskovsky was putting on his own ballet productions for his family in their living room. By the age of eight, he was confident that theater would be his passion for life. Now, at sixteen, he’s one of the Bay Area’s most active student actors."

"Every so often we are fortunate to cross paths with somebody with that intangible spark that makes them stand out in a really good way. They bring enthusiasm to all they do, and they inspire others to reach far beyond what seems possible. I ran into such a person some years ago, and I’ve been amazed by what this young fellow has done and continues to do."

Sunnyvale Community Players
OCTOBER 28 - NOVEMBER 12, 2023
An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun!
Val is music directing/conducting the 21-piece orchestra for this production!

District Merchants/William Shakespeare's Land of the Dead
The Pear Theatre
NOVEMBER 17 - DECEMBER 10, 2023
District Merchants: Love, loss, litigation, and predatory lending are examined in surprising ways in this uneasy comedy, which wades fearlessly into the endless complexities and contradictions of life in America.
William Shakespeare's Land of the Dead: London, 1599. After the opening of his newest play, Henry V at the Globe Playhouse, William Shakespeare must once again defend his work while the actors strut and fret - and an excess of bile plagues the populace outside. When the company’s costumer is bitten by a plague-ridden madman, and the Queen and her men arrive seeking safety, life in the playhouse takes a turn for the worse. As the affliction spreads through London, the Globe is placed in quarantine and the survivors within must fight for their lives. Can they escape? Is there a cure? Is artistic integrity ever worth dying for? A true and accurate account of the Elizabethan zombie plague.
Val is the lighting designer for these two shows, playing in repertory at The Pear! Visit thepear.org for the performance schedule.
