Actor - Every Creeping Thing

 is thrilled to be joining his first Titantic Theatre production!  And with the magic cocktail of technology and a global pandemic, he can do so from the comfort of his own home.  Which is great because, you know, people really haven’t been spending much time at home lately.  Chris has previously appeared in almost too many of Darren’s Theatre on Fire productions to name.  Okay, maybe not as many as all that, but quite a few.  Favorite TOF roles include Baldrick in two productions of Blackadder, Miles/Lady Romola in Act a Lady, and Dusty in Clown Bar.  Thanks to everyone who is keeping the dream of theater alive in new and interesting ways.

She fondly remembers Zeitgeist Stage roles in Chain, The Credeaux Canvas, Far Away, Popcorn, and Bee-Luther Hatchee; as well as an amazing spring directing David Miller and Co in At Home…At The Zoo!  Thank you to Symone & Sidney & Steele for being the best kids a mom could ever design; to Grammy & KK & Demian for being my epic supporting crew; and to Nick for always being ready with the white horse and the sunset.
