Nathan Stanaland

Director of Technical Theatre

I’m proud to be a Bridgeland Bear and have been welcomed with open arms. I am a native Houstonian and attended Sam Houston State University, graduating in 2010 with a Bachelors of Fine Arts with emphasis in Technical Theatre. My adventure  after college took me to Washington DC to be a scenic artist intern with the Shakespeare Theatre Company for their 2012 -2011 Season. Once that internship concluded, I went to the Music Theatre of Wichita, accepting a position as a scenic artist where, with a team of fifteen, we built and painted five full scale musicals in three months with twenty-nine full scale backdrops. Coming back home to Houston I worked at the Alley Theatre for two years and then transferred to the academic world. This is my fifth year of teaching high school with my first four years at Cypress Ranch High School. In 2008 I was in introduced to Don and Jane Childs and they company Stagecraft institute of Las Vegas. I have been working/ volunteering with that company for the past ten years teaching hand drafting, designer focus, prop making, foam carving, scenic painting, etc. I continue to freelance as a designer and artist in the Houston area. Ursa Major Theatrics is a growing company where great theatre is happening and will continue to happen.
