Chris Wyatt - Founder of Crossbridge Theatre Company
Chris' stage experience spanned a period of 60 years, and began with the wonderful Te Aroha Dramatic Society, then at Massey University, and later the Harlequin Players, Showbiz Christchurch, Canterbury Opera and Centrestage.
Chris formed the
Crossbridge Theatre Company, initially, as a vehicle to stage "The Prisoner", telling a story inspired by his own harrowing experience with cancer.
With the success his first production achieved, Chris had a vision for the continued positive impact
the theatre can have in the Hibiscus Coast Community, which we intend to continue in honour of Chris who passed away on 20/9/2017.
