Eli K. M. Foster began acting in the summer of 1972, playing Yankle in a Taos NM production of Fiddler on the Roof. He was hooked forever. Eli has experience in both dramatic and musical theater and has worked on many productions including True West and Fool for Love and Alice in Wonderland and The Little Mermaid. He created the role of Dunlop Sablehand in the World Premiere of In Order of Appearance by Gardner McKay, and has worked with Josh Bryant (M*A*S*H), Steven Root (The Office) and recently competed a co-starring role on Hawaii 5-0 as Deputy US Marshal O. Knox. Eli has worked at both Snowmass Repertory and the Taos Repertory Company in New Mexico. He has directed as well and helped create the Muskeg Muse Players in Fairbanks, Alaska. Eli recently appeared on the TAG stage as Thaddeus Stevens in Resistance and is currently working on the Hawaii based independent film Popolo. He last appeared on-stage at HPU’s Paul and Vi Loo Theater as Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof. He is pleased to be back at TAG-The Actors Group for Superior Donuts.
Regarding his work in Superior Donuts, Eli told us:
I’m looking forward to this show hitting the stage. Traci Letts is a great playwright and Arthur is a great character. He is burdened by his past and all the guilt that goes along with it. An aging everyman who has to figure out how to cope with his own shortcomings and to love again. This is going to be a great show with a great cast and I’m really excited to be working once again with Rebecca McCarthy and Ann Brandman as well as Brian Gibson. Folks like these make the experience fun and rewarding every day.
Superior Donuts will be running May 8-31, 2015. Go to http://www.taghawaii.net or call 808-722-6941 for tickets. Seats are going fast already! This should be another great show.
