Richmond Civic Theatre Hires Technical Director

Richmond Civic Theatre is pleased to announce the hiring of Richmond resident as the theatre’s Technical Director. Clarke will begin with the theatre the week of October 3rd.

RCT has not had a full-time Technical Director for many years, and the staff and volunteers are excited for the possibilities that Clarke brings.

“I’ve had the honor to work alongside some of the best technical theatre professionals in the Miami Valley; Aaron’s talent and skill is on par with all of them,” said John Faas, RCT Executive Director. “RCT is lucky to have someone with Aaron’s passion and dedication. We are simply thrilled to have him onboard.”

As Technical Director, Clarke’s duties will include recruiting and training volunteers in all areas of technical theatre, managing the upkeep and maintenance of the Murray Theatre auditorium and stage, providing technical support to directors and designers, and managing all production related budgets and inventory. Patrons have seen Clarke’s technical work in shows like The SpongeBob Musical in August, Frozen, Jr., The Lion King, Jr. and Fiddler on the Roof in previous seasons as an RCT volunteer.

“There is such a huge community of volunteers that bring so much talent, skills and passion to RCT and without them, RCT wouldn’t exist. They all give their time and passion to the community for nothing in return and I see this position as working for them. The personal goal I will carry over into this role is to continue to grow and improve the RCT volunteer and patron experience alike through providing organization, training and leadership opportunities to all while also working to build the resources available to all the technical areas,” said Clarke.

Clarke has been a Richmond resident for 18 years and is married to Gene Creviston. They have one dog, Stella. He has volunteered at RCT since 2017.

“I left high school dead set on running my own theatre design company but instead I landed in this small community where I met my now husband and had come to terms that dream had passed. Then I found a job that allowed me to play in the theatre in my off hours, that was great, but just a hobby. The most exciting thing for me is I actually get to live my childhood dream of working in technical theatre and live my life with my family and friends I love so much!”
