Local theatrical troupe providing laughs monthly at

 Steeltown Coffee & Tea

Brad Cooreman and his merry band of Old Town Players have an interesting way of preparing for this summer’s Shakespeare in the Park production of ‘Twelfth Night.’ They do improvisational comedy at Steeltown Coffee & Tea (695 Railroad Ave.). 

Cooreman, a drama teacher in a private school in San Francisco, moved to Pittsburg six years ago. He was impressed by the development of Pittsburg’s Old Town area, including the restoration of the California Theatre.  

“We felt comfortable in our neighborhood,” he said. “My daughter can go out and ride her bike, and I’m just five minutes from Old Town.” 

With bachelors and masters degrees in drama, Cooreman was involved with professional theatre for many years with Berkeley Rep, California Shakespeare Theatre, San Jose Rep and Bay Area Theatresports, one of the nation’s top improvisational comedy companies. 

Last year, with help from the City of Pittsburg and the Pittsburg Arts & Community Foundation, he created TheatreCORE, a theatrical company, to do ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in John Buckley Square, the plaza on Railroad Ave. between 5th and 6th streets. 

The first-year undertaking was a success. 

“We attracted 600 people for our six shows,” said Cooreman, who was hoping to attract 400 attendees for the performance.  

The response persuaded Cooreman and his actors to begin planning for another production this year with ‘Twelfth Night’ to be offered the weekends of July 8 and 15. The group began its first read-through of the play on Feb. 28. 

Five of the troupe members are from Pittsburg with others from Antioch, Brentwood, Pleasant Hill, Walnut Creek and Vallejo.  

Wanting to stay together, they met regularly at the Railroad Book Depot and began working on improv comedy. 

“I studied improv at BATS, and I use what I learned there in my school curriculum,” said Cooreman. “Here I get to work with adults. Which is a lot of fun to do. At first, it was a way to do something together. Now, it’s turned into a fundraiser as we prepare for ‘Twelfth Night.’” 

The next free performance is at Steeltown at 3 p.m. on April 2. The actors do pass the hat at the end of performances. 

Cooreman says anyone interested in learning more or joining the group can go to the TheatreCORE website at www.TheatreCORE.com for information.
