Darryl Audette joined Merlyn Productions as its Technical Director in March 2015. His primary interests are in the technical and design aspects of the theatrical space in all its forms.
While Darryl has always been involved in all things artistic, it was in the theatre that he found an outlet for his creative ideas and energy. He initially joined FTC as its Technical Director, Stage Manager, props builder, and eventually, set and lighting designer, and then moved on to props building at the Manitoba Theatre Centre, with additional technical direction, stage management and design credits at K.P. Productions, Townhouse 9 Productions, Stage West Dinner Theatre, and the Winnipeg Fringe Festival.
Darryl's love of the stage never left him, and after an extended hiatus to pursue other interests and occupation, he has recently returned as a professional model builder and a student in Design at the University of Winnipeg Faculty of Theatre and Film. In 2013, he designed and lit a Winnipeg Fringe Festival production of “Raising Roger” that brought the audience into a period Kensington Market book store, in addition to other independent local productions.
Darryl is a past recipient of the Banff Center Scholarship in Theatre Production, and a three-time recipient of the Royal MTC Design Apprenticeship since 2014. He is also known in the world of miniature art for creating some of the finest award-winning box dioramas in North America; his work can be seen online at BOXDIORAMAS.COM and DARRYLAUDETTE.COM.
