Chris Brown


Before joining the staff at Orlando REP, Chris had a busy career all over the United States. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from UCF in 2005 and immediately after was accepted into the prestigious Yale School of Drama and graduated from Yale University with a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Technical Design and Production. Throughout his schooling, Chris held Technical Director positions at the Utah Shakespearean Festival and was the Production Supervisor for the New York Summer Play Festival. At Yale, Chris worked at the renowned Yale Repertory Theater on many productions and was schooled in everything from structural engineering and automation to production and theatre management. After Yale, Chris went to work for one of the largest Broadway Scene Shops, Hudson Scenic Studio, and worked in the Automation department. In 2009, Chris was a project manager in the construction of the NYC Times Square Ball, which is the first ball to reside in Times Square year round. After all that, Chris has spent the last 9 years at the Orlando Repertory Theatre. The first 8 years as the Production Manager and the last 5 years as the General Manager. Chris still strongly believes that Orlando REP is the most fulfilling position he has held in his career because he gets to introduce kids to theater everyday.
