Curt Cloninger

“If I had known in advance how incredible this guy is, I would have invited ten people to his show!” That’s a common audience response after seeing one of Curt Cloninger’s performances.

Curt Cloninger is an actor, writer, storyteller and genuinely talented guy who has been performing his unique brand of solo theatre for over 25 years. He’s performed in some unlikely places: in the Georgia Dome for 30,000 people, standing on top of a stool in the commons at U.C. Berkeley and in every imaginable theatre and church setting. His performances have an intimacy which pulls people into the stories. Wherever he performs, whether it’s a large conference, or a small theatre, people are deeply moved. Curt commonly hears from people who tell him that his stories are still impacting their lives, years after seeing a performance. Curt’s performances make people laugh, and cry and examine what they believe about life. And while they’re laughing, they’re also getting a refreshing and new perspective on God’s great story of love. Curt’s work is more than brilliant theatre – it’s theatre with a lasting impression.

Curt received a B.A. in Theatre from Abilene Christian University, and received further acting training at Pacific Conservatory. He’s been married to his great wife Tish since 1984 and has two great kids (Kappel and Lily), one great Springer Spaniel and two aloof cats.
