Meet the people behind Theatre in the Country

Reg Parks 

Artistic Director

Reg started Theatre in the Country after being encouraged to do so by students and parents invovled with his drama class at Maple Ridge Christian School. He has been teaching there since 2001 and is thrilled that many people from that fine community have joined with him here at TIC to continue making the magic.

Reg is a theatrical jack of all trades. While acting is his first love, he has expanded into all roles: producer, director, writer, designer and teacher. He holds an MA in Theatre, and loves attending theatre in Vancouver and around the world with Erin who is his partner in magic at TIC.

Erin Parks

Producer

Erin started TIC with her husband, Reg, and it has been a thrill to see it grow! Erin is an award-winning documentary filmmaker with a passion to understand and celebrate our local and global community. For the past 20 years, Erin has been a video editor in the Vancouver TV and film community. She shoots and edits all promotional videos, along with the show projections for TIC and is always excited when video can be integrated into a live production!

Erin was thrilled to co-direct her first play, Black Comedy, in 2019!

 

Graham Coates

Technical Director

Graham oversees all the technical functions at TIC: lights, video, sound, special effects and the occassional explosion are all in his domain. A self-proclaimed geek who loves flying radio controlled helicopters, he keeps TIC boyant and cheerful with his great attitude and huge heart.

When Graham is not at TIC he is a teacher and highly skilled IT guy. His wife Jessica is the Concession Manager here at TIC and the two of them enjoy being a part of our thespian community. They have both appeared on stage as well as behind the scenes.

Dayna Horn

Operations Assistant

Dayna joined the TIC crew in 2018 as an Assistant Stage Manager, and continued to return for over 20 productions, working backstage as ASM, in the booth (and for a while over Zoom) as SM, and even making a couple of appearances onstage in the years since. After graduating from Douglas College’s Stagecraft program, they have had the opportunity to work with companies including Pacific, Monster, and Ruby Slippers Theatre. They are happy to be able to use their love of spreadsheets and organization to help with auditions, program preparation, and the like now as Operations Assistant for TIC. Thank you to those who have supported them on their theatre journey, and to you for supporting community theatre! DFTBA
