Zach Murphy – Master Carpenter


Zach Murphy - Master Carpenter at Bigfork Summer PlayhouseAnother welcome back — this time to Zach Murphy of Clinton, Mississippi! Zach is spending season #2 with the Bigfork Summer Playhouse as Master Carpenter. Get to know Zach below.

What role(s) do you play at the BSP this season?

I am the Master Carpenter (I build things you see on the set.)

What is your personal history with theatre?

I started acting when I was in high school. I would perform in the school plays. After that I got started at the local community theatre in my hometown. I decided to pursue acting and went to the University of Mississippi to study acting.

During my time at the university I switched over to stage management and worked as a carpenter in the shop there for three years. After graduating I decided to keep working as a carpenter.

Zach_Murphy_2How long have you been at Bigfork Summer Playhouse?

This is my second season at the playhouse. I interviewed with Don Thomson at UPTA two years ago in Memphis. I didn’t know much about the Playhouse but by the time the interview was done I was sold on taking a job here at the Playhouse if it was offered to me. The rest is history!

What is your favorite thing to do in your “off” time while staying in Bigfork?

My favorite thing to do during my off time is to float down the river with the other company members.

What are your plans after the BFSP season ends?

I am planning to head wherever the road takes me for work.
