Richard Pallaziol studied theatre at CSU Long Beach and SF’s American Conservatory Theatre. As a fight choreographer, director, actor and dancer he has worked on over 400 shows in the past 45 years. He is the owner of Weapons of Choice, providing props to theatres nationwide, and is the author of The Textbook of Theatrical Combat. Somehow in the middle of all that he was the chief administrator for a chain of medical clinics in Los Angeles and San Diego during the 1980’s.

“Society has for too long ignored the tremendous potential that exists in the intelligence, experience, wisdom, and power of mature women. Although theatre is always a reflection of society, it can also help nudge the direction society takes.”
