Description
Actor and writer David Sheaffer's collection of documents and memorabilia related to theater in Santa Cruz County, California, especially the Bear Republic Theater.
Background
David Shaeffer was an actor and writer. He started in local theater as soon as he arrived in Santa Cruz, in 1854. He was a charter member of the Santa Cruz Community Players, the seminal theater group in Santa Cruz. As the Community Players splintered and other companies started up, Sheaffer moved from production to production, taking part in company after company. He worked building sets, designing programs, writing reviews and as an actor on stage and later in movies filmed in Santa Cruz.
