This year’s recipients are father and son duo Geoff and Dan Hoyle!
"Geoff Hoyle has been an inspiration to Dell'Arte as long as we have known him," says Joan Schirle, Dell'Arte's Founding Artistic Director, "all the way back to his days with the Pickle Family Circus as Mr. Sniff. Geoff has taught at Dell'Arte School, lectured to our students, and provided to them an example of a multi-talented genius who can write, clown, direct, and act in everything from a Broadway smash to political satire, and who has always stood for justice and independent cultural production.” Hoyle's latest show, “Geezer,” won Best Solo Show and Best Original Script at the Bay Area Critics Circle Awards 2012.
Tickets for the Prize of Hope include the 4pm awards ceremony, dinner, drinks and an evening performance of "Mary Jane: The Musical."
