Chris is glad to be returning to The Phoenix Theater Company to be a part of this wonderful new piece, Americano!, and is proud to be a part of each step of its evolution over the past years. Most recently, Chris was seen in hit production of Elf: The Musical as Walter Hobbs. Chris is a four-time AriZoni award winner, including best lead actor in I love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change. He has appeared in many commercials, has been seen on PBS, and also performed nationally in various musical comedies. He has performed in all six of the joint productions with the Phoenix Symphony, a delight and honor. A favorite memory for Chris was surviving 23 costume changes per performance in Curtains (Thanks Michael!!!). Locally, some of Chris’s favorite shows have been Billy Elliot, White Christmas, Hairspray, Memphis, La Cage Aux Folles, The Producers, Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, The Will Rogers Follies, A Chorus Line, Into the Woods, Jesus Christ Superstar, Chicago, Little Shop of Horrors, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, City of Angels, and many, many more. Chris would like to thank his PCDS fifth-grade class, his friends, and husband Daryl for putting up with him during this rehearsal and performance period. ALSO - God bless coffee!
