Chris has been active as a theatre artist since he graduated from the Theatre Arts Program at MacEwan in 1990. There was a six year hiatus during the heavy period of touring with Captain Tractor between 1994 and 2000, but even so theatre has always been his greatest passion. Chris has worked professionally as an actor, sound designer, composer, lyricist, musical director and recently even as a playwright. He has received numerous awards and nominations in all of these fields. (Well, not play writing yet, but he’s working on it.)

If there is a place where Chris feels the most at home it is that place where pop music meets theatre. This is where he feels he can contribute the most. It makes sense that writing musicals is what he finds himself doing a lot of the time.

So far Chris has been on the creative end of six new works of musical theatre. These plays are:

  • Frankenstein
  • Dr. Sterling and his Silver Shark
  • Red Lips, The Musical
  • The Winter’s Tale Project
  • Saint Aggie’s ’84
