My Role: Lighting Designer
New Wrinkles is an annual musical/comedy/review show starring the “not-quite-ready-for-retirement” (55 years old or more) community in Fresno. I joined the company as lighting designer for the 25th anniversary show, but it wasn’t until my third year, I managed to get photos! The show has an incredibly short load-in and tech period for as big as it is. With minimal full runs and previews, I only managed to snap a few pictures during tech. Jeff Barrett, our scenic designer created an elegant jazz club to house a review of the greatest jazz hits from the twentieth century.
“Christopher R. Boltz’s lights and Jeff Barrett’s sets and technical design add an impressive dazzle to the show.”
