Khari Haynes as Flute in ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’




Khari Haynes starred as Flute in the Marin Shakespheare Company production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” which ran from August 30 to September 29. This was Haynes’ first professional performance.

Haynes, 24, is a junior at San Francisco State University studying Theater Arts. Haynes also studied drama with the Performing Stars of Marin under Felecia Gaston.
Haynes’ character Flute does not like but is forced to play the female role of Thisbe in “Pyramus and Thisbe,” a play-within-the-play which is performed for Theseus’ marriage celebration.

Haynes shared that he enjoyed playing the role of Flute because he is able to do improvisation, which he always wanted to do.

It also helped him see a woman’s perspective on what she thinks about and goes through in her everyday life, her appearance and how that takes a toll on her self esteem.


East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
