Torey Bookstein


Torey Bookstein is thrilled to be making her first appearance with the Foodbank Players. Torey trained at the Jacques Thibaud Conservatory of Music, in Bordeaux, France, as well as with the theater schools at both Berkeley Rep and S.F. A.C.T. Torey has also written, produced, and directed seven autobiographical cabaret shows, including Parenting: How Bad Could It Be? and Parenting 2: I’m So Glad I Caught the Vomit In My Hand! Notable credits include The Man Who Saved Christmas (Mary Gilbert) with Chanticleers; A Midsummer Night’s Dream (The Musical!) (Quince; u/s Titania/Hippolyta) with Berkeley Shakespeare Company; Fiddler on the Roof (Hodel) with Ballibay Theater; A…My Name is Alice (Karen, Chanteuse, & others), and Little Shop of Horrors (Chiffon) with Roeper Theater; The Very Last One And Only Highly Endangered Mountain Lion In Pennsylvania (Stank) with Musical Café. Torey will also be appearing with the Masquers this fall as Lily in Loose Knit. Torey is especially passionate about broadening the equity lenses & social justice impact of theater to shape a more just world. Thank you to my beloved partner and sons, who make all of this possible, and who bring so much joy to my life; and I dedicate this performance especially to my dad Fred, who showed me the beauty of Arden.
