  • Zach Rolf who is playing Buddy the Elf in our holiday production of ELF ON STAGE now in the Sunset Spotlight
    1. When did you first become involved at Sunset Playhouse and what areas have you been involved with here at the Playhouse?


    • The first Sunset Show I was cast in was CABARET in the spring of 2020, but the production was short lived due to COVID. Two years later, I made my Sunset debut as Nigel Bottom in SOMETHING ROTTEN.


    1. If you are working on a Sunset show right now, what is your role?  


    • I am currently portraying Buddy the Elf in ELF THE MUSICAL.


    1. If an actor, what has been your favorite role to date and what is your dream role? If a Production Team member, which show have you most enjoyed working on?  What show would you like to do in the future?


    • My favorite role has been Leaf Coneybear in THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE. My dream role is Sweeney Todd, which always seems to surprise people. In the future I would love to be able to tap into directing, and my dream show to direct is JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR.


    1. What do you enjoy most about the Sunset?


    • I really love how every time I’ve been a part of a Sunset show, the casts and crews make you feel so welcome. Sunset is a great place to find talented people who treat you so kindly.


    1. When not at Sunset, how do you spend your time?


    • At home, I like to spend time playing my ukulele and writing songs and scripts. I also love spending time with my friends and loved ones every chance I get.


    1. What is your favorite color/food/movie/TV show/book/musical or play?


    • My favorite color is purple. For food, I can never go wrong with a good steak. My favorite movie is AMADEUS. THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL is a show that I put on anytime I need a laugh. I don’t have a favorite book, but one I read recently that I highly recommend is WOMEN TALKING by Miriam Toews. My favorite musical will have to go to INTO THE WOODS, and my favorite play is RUMORS by Neil Simon.


    1. What is your favorite quote?


    • “Surround yourself with people whose eyes light up when they see you coming.” – André De Shields
