Take a Stand answers the urgent call to center voices that have been systemically excluded, misrepresented, or silenced in traditional theatre.
As a regional company based on Vashon Island, Washington, we solicit and produce new and reinvented productions across established and emerging media that challenge the concept that there are no new stories.
Chris is a NYC-born activist, teacher, director, and actor. His regional credits include stints at Seattle Rep, ACT Theatre, Empty Space, Group Theatre, Intiman, Alice B, and Aha! He teaches acting at Vashon Center for the Arts and has developed works at Open Space and VCA. Chris directed last year's production of She Kills Monsters for Drama Dock and is the curator for Vashon Readers Theatre.
Founded in 2016, Take a Stand has produced plays and events on Vashon Island including The Vagina Monologues, My Mother, Myself, Crimes of the Heart, and more.
