Ethan Hollinger

Lighting Designer, 1st season

Ethan Hollinger is excited to return to the South and join Texas Shakes as the Lighting Designer! An avid writer, artist, and musician, he can usually be found hard at work with a mug of tea. He graduated from North Greenville University in 2014 with his Bachelor of Arts and continued at Illinois State University to graduate in 2017 with his Master of Fine Arts. He has designed across the country for Southern Appalachian Repertory Theatre, Theatre West Summer Repertory, Orchesis Intercity Dance Company, PCPA- Pacific Conservatory Theatre, and others. Favorite past designs include Tales of Poe, Julius Caesar, Waiora, Street Scene: An American Opera, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, and Harvest. Ethan would like to thank Chris, Glenn, Diego, and his family and friends for all their continuing love and support. "For courage mounteth with occasion."
