Behind the Scenes

Chris Karr is the technical director at ACT 1. He creates different worlds each season through creative lighting, sets, sound and staging. He designs and builds parade float units, portable hand-washing stations, and shelter for actors from heat, rain and frost.

Chris accomplishes all of this in a minimal space, with limited equipment and does it with grace, patience and professionalism. Many carpenters, painters, back-stage crew, actors and directors have benefited in theatre and life in general from the lessons gained in collaborating with Chris.
