A familiar face on the Rock Valley College stage will lead the college’s theater program. According to a news release, Christopher Brady has accepted the college’s offer to become the new Director of Theatre and Arts Park. Longtime leader Mike Webb stepped down earlier this year.
The release says Brady will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Starlight Theatre, the box office, and costume and scenic shops, as well as for the development and delivery of theatre productions, oversight of credit theatre programs, and the coordination and scheduling of events for the Sjostrom Theatre and the Arts Park.
Brady served as Associate Producer and Stage Manager for RVC’s Starlight and Studio Theatres from 2003 through 2013.
Brady was most recently a teacher for the West Middle School CAPA Program where he taught social studies, theatre, and technical theatre for grades 6-8.
Brady is a graduate of Rock Valley College and Rockford University and earned a Certificate of Integrated Theatrical Studies from the American Musical and Dramatics Academy.
