Red Tape Rockstar: Kyle Land

Kyle is this months Red Tape Rockstar! Kyle joined Red Tape in April 2009 when he designed lights for Enemy of the People. Kyle was also the Technical Director for that production. The position of Tech Director is a key position in the production team, responsible for making sure every aspect of the play comes together in time for opening. Red Tape is known for our bad-ass designs; so the TD is super important to our process.

This month, Kyle was the Tech Director on Obscura. As you’ve probably seen (and if you haven’t, get your tickets now), the set for that show is pretty amazing! Kyle built that bad-boy all by himself with some help from our ensemble members. On top of that, he lit it too! Kyle clearly went above and beyond the call of duty for this production and we are deeply thankful. Kyle always kept a cool head and pushed through. What he accomplished is nothing short of amazing. We hope he takes great pride in his set as we take great pride in having in our ensemble.
