Meet this year’s Theatre Director
This year’s Theatre production at The Lights of Christmas is directed by Victoria Ritchey. Ritchey got her start in theatre in sixth grade when she played the title role in, The Giggling Goblin. Later she received formal theatre training from Washington State University and worked for Taproot Theatre Company in Seattle.
Ritchey has written, directed and performed in productions at The Lights of Christmas. Her role as director allows her to grow and shape the production in a new way. She helps actors make discoveries and go deeper into the layers of their characters. She gets to provide a compelling story for the audience with detail and care while using her creative abilities to help tell a story that will inspire her audience.
According to Ritchey, every part of the production from costuming to talent helps tell the story. Her hope is that the show evokes emotion for the audience and a hope for redemption and forgiveness. “Thinking about the audience receiving the play inspires me. I always have the attitude that we are preparing a gift. Not only is the message important, but the details, quality and accuracy are important. We want the audience to take home a happy memory.”
Ritchey’s dedication to effective storytelling and audience experience is sure to make this year’s production a hit!
