Our Resident Designers
Resident Property Designer
John stumbled into the Prop Designer role while serving as Assistant Stage Manager on Mind Over Murder!, and has stubbornly resisted all efforts to remove him ever since, incessantly haunting antique malls, flea markets, charity shops, and seedy back alleys in the never-ending quest for The Perfect Prop. He has designed props for other local theatre companies, but his heart belongs to Pegasus. Wherever he goes, he is accompanied by the faint odor of epoxy glue and wet paint.
