Summary

I am relocating to the New Haven area in early October and am eager to find out about job opportunities in local theatre. Since August of 2002, I have served as Technical Director of the Wilhoit Theatre at Drury University. Drury’s theatre program consists of about seventy students and eight faculty and adjunct faculty members. Each season, we mount three straight plays and one musical on our main stage, and one smaller production in our studio black box theatre. We also do two touring productions, our Broadway Cabaret musical revue and our Shakespeare in the Schools, which takes a bare-bones abridged literary masterpiece on tour to local high schools in the spring. We feature a playwriting competition every other year and produce the top two submissions, and last semester boasted a first-time partnership with a historical downtown theatre. I am very proud of the growth I’ve witnessed and helped to foster in the past ten years.

Being the only full-time staff member has allowed me to remain very hands-on with respect to everything we do on a daily basis. I have been very active in the building of special props and furniture, scenic painting, scenic design, and lighting design at Drury. I teach our students the values of craftsmanship and pride, and I try to teach it by example. I strive to create a positive, collaborative work environment in which people can take advantage of their strengths. In addition, I am a general problem-solver and a creative and forward thinker.
