We're very grateful for all the folks behind the scenes to make this phenomenal solo theatre festival possible!


Eli Hans

Eli is an award-winning playwright and actor, a producer/director, and transformational theatre coach. 

After experiencing the transformative success of writing and presenting his mostly one-man show OUT OF THE BLUE, he realized, once again, how powerful theatre can be to share stories that inspire, enlighten, educate and entertain. 

He's truly delighted to present this series of outstanding solo theatre shows to the San Miguel community, hoping everyone loves it, and it will become an annual happening, giving solo theatre artists an opportunity to challenge themselves and express their passion on stage.
