Stefan Mantyk - Technical Director

Our Technical Director Stefan Mantyk is truly a Jack of All Trades.  His start in theatrics stem back to his early days with the Michigan Renaissance Festival and his long time character persona Lester The Jester.  Juggling, magic, balloon twisting, and general clowning has made him a hit with street festivals, private parties and other theatrical endeavors.  He's worked with Delirio del' Arte, Theatre Bizarre, Brainstormers, the Palace Patrol, GO! Comedy Improv Club and is always looking for new venues to perform for small or large groups.

Paul Jagoda - Scenic Design Director

After a little 17 year break from acting and standup comedy, Paul Jagoda was cast as James Lingk in Epicenter Theatre Group's inaugural production of Glengarry Glen Ross. He also played Kostya in The Man Who Lost His Sundays and The Visitor in Picasso at the Lapin Agile.

The enthusiasm, motivation, and determination behind the creation of Epicenter Theatre Group stems from Michigan manufacturing entrepreneur, Marco Zaccagnini. Marco graduated from Oakland University’s prestigious Department of Music, Theatre and Dance in 2006. Not unlike many Michigan residents, Marco made the most of his job opportunities and joined the family business to work alongside his brother, Tonino Zaccagnini. After Marco’s five year hiatus from theatre and working through one challenge after another in his personal and professional life, the dream of acting resurfaced and the motivation to capitalize on the dream of creating a theatre company re-emerged.
