Andrew Hoar, Theatre Production Designer/Technical Director
Andy Hoar has led a varied and active life as a theatre technician. While pursuing his Bachelor of Arts degree at New England College in tech and performance, he also survived summer stock in New Jersey and New Hampshire. He has also worked as an electrician and "roadie" for several bands including Boston and New Riders of the Purple Sage.
His technical expertise has taken him to the Boston Opera, the Palace Theater (Manchester, NH), Northfield-Mount Hermon School, and Colby-Sawyer College. Over the last 20 plus years at MCLA, Andy has designed more than 50 shows, including a post-apocalyptic Macbeth with scrap metal including two compacted cars, the elegant solarium for Pillars of Society, and the computer projected artwork of The Laramie Project. As advisor and lighting designer for the MCLA Dance Company, Andy works closely with the student organization to produce two full scale dance shows each year.
He also enjoys riding his custom Harley-Davidson, creating unique 4-wheel drive trucks, and fishing and boating on a quiet lake in Maine. Andy serves as a board member on the Mohawk Theater restoration committee and is Chair of the Williamstown Zoning Board of Appeals. Andy's position at MCLA allows him to be active in all aspects of his art as he directs his energies towards the involvement of students in theatre.
