Christopher David Gauthier specializes in design for the theatre (costumes, props, and set) and is especially fond of projects with teaching opportunities or student involvement. His work runs the gambit between established classics (in both traditional and innovative productions), new scripted works, and a variety of experimental projects.
Christopher has been nominated for four Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards, for his work on Hardline Productions’ Bright Blue Future, Honest Fishmongers’ King Lear, Yogurt Theatre Co.’s Cold Comfort, and a nomination for Significant Artistic Achievement for Outstanding body of work for costume design. He’s currently working as the costume designer for The Madness of George III at the Shaw Festival in Ontario.
In the most recent Theatre Wire video, Sara Bynoe admits to Christopher that she really has no idea what the process of being a designer is like. Christopher shares his experience, giving us a glimpse behind the scenes and enlightening us on how theatre productions get just the right look.
