Sets / Lighting - David Helzel

"David Helzel has been called an actor, child wrangler, confidant and coach, lighting & sound engineer, tech guru, prop master, finder of lost things, and set designer/builder (along with a few names that are better forgotten). He began his theater experience when he was only 5 years old, acting in a play called "How the Elephant Got its Trunk." In the 31 years since, he's lost count of the plays, skits, and dramas he's been part of. After acting, his passion is mostly in the tech side of things (including lights and sound). When not on stage he feels that it is his responsibility to do his job as close to perfectly as possible so that NOTHING distracts from the actors' performances."

"I got involved with TVT as a Stage Manager for Tennessee Triptych in summer of 2015, and I've been hooked ever since.  I have a wonderful husband and 4 talented, artsy children!  My hope is that we can get the word out to more and more people in the community about our theatre, every year!  It's a lot of fun here!  Come check it out and you'll see why!"

But the most enjoyable hobby is spoiling the grandkids!
