The Rocky Horror Show is dedicated to Craig Orsinger (1956-2020). You may not have seen Craig around the theater, but he was a big part of what you did see and hear. Craig worked backstage and in the background. He was a dependable volunteer and a master of sound, light, computer equipment, and a much-needed set of hands.
Craig began working with BAT in the early 1980s. He took a break at one time but came back with a vengeance in the 2000s. He was one of the few longstanding BAT volunteers. He would tell stories of the early days, and he was also part of what drove the theater forward. Without Craig, much of the sound equipment you see would either not be there or would not work.
Craig was also a light designer and designed the light for several shows at BAT, including most the playwrights’ festivals for the last ten years.
Craig was taken from us too soon. He was a huge part of the BAT family and a dear friend to Maggie, me, and most of the regular BAT volunteers. It is an understatement to say he will be missed.
Wherever Craig may be now, I am sure things are running more smoothly because of his guiding hands.
