Meet the Cast

Chris Bundy
(Noah, Director)

Mr. Bundy has been associated with theatre for more than half a century in the capacity of actor, director, designer or theatre educator.  He graduated with theatre and theatre education degrees from Northwood’s Performing Arts Conservatory and Indiana University. Having spent almost forty years as a theatre educator, he is proud of his former students who have found success in all areas of the performing arts worldwide.  As an educator, he was honored to have his shows selected on numerous occasions for main stage productions at the prestigious International Thespian Festival and enjoyed directing four productions representing Indiana at the Edinburgh, Scotland Fringe Festival. Included among his many awards during his career was being named one of ten educators to receive The Kennedy Center/Stephen Sondheim Inspirational Teacher Honors; recipient of The Educational Theatre Association’s Hall of Fame and Founder’s Award; chosen as an Indiana University Armstrong Teacher Fellow; WHAS ExCel Award winner, and others.

Mr. Bundy has worked with several theatres throughout Indiana and was the founder of the popular Spring Mill Summer Stock theatre that was part of the Indiana State Parks Division for a fourteen year run.  He also founded TheatreWorks of Southern Indiana two years ago with his partner, and former student, Jason Roseberry. He is extremely pleased with the tremendous reception the new theatre has received since its move downtown and is happy to have brought new life to the historic building the theatre calls home.  The current production of “Two By Two” will be Mr. Bundy’s final performance as an actor as he pursues other interests that have been calling. Having sold their beloved Victorian in Salem, Indiana, Mr. Bundy and his wife Jennifer will be moving to New Albany in September to allow him to finish out the season as artistic director of TheatreWorks before moving to Indianapolis to be closer to their children and five grandchildren.  Although he will miss the excitement of the rollercoaster that is theatre, he is more than confident that the talented group of artists that will be taking over will continue to make TheatreWorks one of the area’s best theatrical establishments.
