CHAD HEALY is a designer for performance. Theatre has been his constant for about a decade and a half - the second half of that time being dedicated to design. In 2015, he graduated from The State University of New York at Fredonia with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Theatrical Production and Design - concentration: set design. For the past two years he has pursued an MA in Design for Performance at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
Professionally, he has also worked in sceneshops as a scenic artist and carpenter - and in studios as an assistant and associate set designer. In realizing someone else’s design, Chad isn’t much concerned with job title over being useful towards accomplishing the vision. As design assistant and associate, he is accustomed to wearing paint jeans during tech.
This holds true with his own designs, believing that a good process is ongoing - and the best fertilizer is a gardener’s shadow.
