Kenneth Gray Scolari is an award-winning playwright and director now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area. For many years he was a professor and Chair at Glendale College, located between Los Angeles and Hollywood in Southern California. Many of his former students have gone on to professional careers. He produced and directed several plays, including large musical theatre productions annually, both for the college Theatre Department, and for professional theatres in the greater Los Angeles area. His last project, West Side Story, for Musical Theatre of Los Angeles was a Los Angeles Times Critics Choice and received rave reviews from all local papers. Along the way, Mr. Gray continued to write and direct for the stage. His latest new work, Something’s Missing, was presented at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2005, directed by Lani Harris. Mr. Gray served for three years as Chair of Region VIII of the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival, and the Regional Coordinator of the KC/ACTF Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship Competition for seven years. He has done graduate work in directing at CSU Fullerton and completed the course work in Dramatic Writing at Humboldt State University in 2000. Mr. Gray now splits his time between Northern and Southern California working on theatre projects and -- as always -- he is currently writing yet another new play.
