The 42nd Annual San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Excellence in Theatre Awards Gala for 2017

is to be celebrated Monday, March 26, 2018 at San Francisco's historic Victoria Theatre.

We are pleased to announce our host for the evening:

 

 

Walter M. Mayes!

Walter M. Mayes is an actor and director, a librarian, a professional storyteller, an auctioneer, a lecturer on literature for children and teens, an author, a narrator, and a Master of Ceremonies. 

 

Walter has acted and/or directed for numerous Bay Area theatre companies including South Bay Musical Theatre, City Lights, Palo Alto Players, Broadway by the Bay, Silicon Valley Shakespeare, Lyric Theater, Sunnyvale Community Players, and Foothill Music Theatre. 

 

As Walter the Giant Storyteller (he really is six feet, seven-and-a-half inches tall!) he has traveled extensively throughout the English-speaking world these last thirty years, often dressed as Hagrid from HARRY POTTER. A regular feature at Potter publication parties and gatherings over the years, Walter has appeared as Hagrid on CNN, been written up in the New York Times and San Francisco Chronicle, and published professionally on the topic of the Harry Potter books and their effect on children’s publishing.

 

 Walter will not be dressed as Hagrid for our event. Probably.
