Jeffrey Hales is ecstatic to be the Lead Scenic Painter. After being involved in theater since middle school throughout high school, he now attends VCU School of the Arts aiming for a Theatre BFA in Scenic Design. When he is not in classes, he is working in VCU’s scene shop, most likely painting, but also working props, carpentry, rigging, and occasionally welding. He can sometimes be found designing for Shafer Alliance Laboratory Theatre, a student-run theatre program on campus. He is a visual and fine artist that studies the craft of storytelling. His only regret is that he did not get involved with Travelling Players Ensemble sooner.
