Bigfork Summer Playhouse – Scenery Designer – Rich Haptonstall

Rich is the scenic designer of our show the “High School Musical.” He is from Kalispell, MT. Rich says that, “I feel like a hippie, but rarely act like one!”  Rich is a fun outgoing guy and does his job well. He has worked many places, currently at the FUCC. Rich likes that there is a lot of creative collaboration in theater. Rich’s goal for the next ten years is to help students grow into thoughtful, respectful, theatre artists. He has gotten to where he is now by being persistent and “faking it” as he puts it.

Rich says that, ” Don Thomson, Judy Thomson, and Brach Thomson run the best summer stock theatre in the country. They make everyone feel appreciated!”

In his free time Rich likes to kayak, ski and golf.

We asked him if he could sum up his life in a sentence and he said, “dumb luck!”

After the summer season ends Rich will be heading another semester at FUCC. Check out this video for a look at him working!
