Bay Area Playwright Dares to Dream

 

Creating the comedy action adventure stage play, THUNDERBABE, let Bay Area playwright, Bobbi Fagone, dare to dream.

"This story was in my head for a long time," says Fagone. "It wasn't easy to get it on stage, but my husband, Philip, and many other people believed in me and in the project, and that's what made the show go from dream to reality."

A professional writer for more than 30 years, Bobbi’s work experience includes 11 years with the Walt Disney Company. She began her career at the studio, writing press kits for Walt Disney Pictures. Soon after, she was selected from a pool of over 200 writers to participate in a comedy writing workshop at Warner Brothers. This resulted in a one-year contract as a gag writer on the NBC-TV sitcom, “Love, Sidney,” starring Tony Randall and Swoosie Kurtz.

After “Sidney,” Bobbi returned to Disney and spent the next two years writing a children’s program called “Welcome to Pooh Corner” for The Disney Channel. She was then promoted to Senior Writer for Walt Disney Attractions, writing and producing marketing videos and nationwide live promotional tours featuring the Disney characters for Disneyland, Walt Disney World and Euro Disney.

In 1993, Bobbi left Mickey Mouse, moved to San Francisco, married her husband, Philip, and began her own company, BJF Creative. In Christmas 2003, Bobbi wrote, produced and directed Next Stop, Christmas! a musical comedy for Central Peninsula Church in Foster City. It was attended by more than 2,000 people. Then in Christmas 2004, she wrote and directed Joy Story, another musical comedy also for Central Peninsula Church, and approximately 4,000 people attended.

Bobbi has also written and produced scores of corporate videos for Cisco Systems, Bank of America, Capcom Entertainment, Accolade, Purple Moon, and Catalina Express. But her favorite video production so far is "Bundle Boy," a superhero spoof she wrote and produced for Computer Curriculum Corporation...perhaps a sign of "super" things to come.

About the play
THUNDERBABE i
s the story of a former super heroine—now a comfortably retired wife and soccer mom—whose evil nemesis breaks out of prison and threatens to enslave the globe. Suddenly, Thunderbabe must face skeletons from her past, a spandex suit, and a whopper of a mid-life crisis as she struggles to save the world. The world premiere was performed to sold-out houses in July 2005 at the Altarena Playhouse in Alameda, CA; the encore presentation in May 2007 drew strong reviews and cheering crowds at Theatre on San Pedro Square in San Jose, CA.

Looking forward
Fagone
plans to take THUNDERBABE to other regional theaters on its journey to Broadway. She is currently seeking producing partners (theaters and/or investors) who believe in this project, who want to be associated with its development and can help maximize its potential.
