RIP Sheldon Feldner

Sheldon Feldner 3/16/36-8/11/10 Playwright, actor, poet, director. Loved dogs, the spoken word, and his friends. Born in Chicago, but raised in San Francisco. Graduate of Lincoln High School, San Francisco State, and Stanford University (MFA). US Army Veteran. Member of the San Francisco Actor's Workshop, Stanford Repertory, Berkeley Rep, and The All Army Touring Show, "Rolling Along", among many others. Taught playwriting and theater classes at UC Santa Cruz, Emerson College, Stevenson and Cowell Colleges. Over nine plays produced--including "Mad Oscar" at Berkeley Rep in 1978--and numerous musical reviews. 1980 Dramalogue Award winner for Acting. Worked as an actor in film and TV, in both Hollywood and San Francisco, series regular on Fox TV's "Good Grief." A 'Hail Fellow Well Met' personality, with a comedic, acerbic wit, and a sly devilish smile, Sheldon was proudly just an old theater dog, always bringing his "A" material wherever he went, be it on the stage or while walking his beloved Cleopatra in Golden Gate Park. A celebration of his life will be held September 20, 2010 at 6:00 pm. Please come and share a story, and a laugh--or a whisper of a tear--for our old pal Shel.
