Chris Hauge

Associate Critic


Chris has performed at both equity and non-equity theatres throughout the Metroplex for almost 35 years. Favorite roles include, Kaufmann (Bach at Leipzig-Circle Theatre), Amundson (Terra Nova-Onstage Bedford), Nicky (The Seafarer-Stage West), Gerald (Triangles-The Last Train to Tophet-Pocket Sandwich Theatre (PST)), Nunzio (Over the River and Through the Woods-PST), Matthew Shelton (Losing Daniel-Sibling Rivalry Productions), Gus (Southern Comforts-Grace United Methodist Church), Andy (Love Letters-Grace UMC), Doc (Atomic Cave Girls of Island Zero-PST), and many others.

Chris graduated with a Bachelor?s Degree in Speech & Theatre/Religion & Philosophy from Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, SD in 1977. During his schooling, he spent a summer working with the repertory theatre Black Hills Playhouse run by the University of South Dakota. Following graduation Chris spent a year with Covenant Players, a non-denominational Christian Theatre Group in Reseda, California. He travelled all over the country and performed over 600 times in scripts ranging from a minute in length to full three-act plays. He then came to Dallas where he attended Perkins School of Theology/SMU, earning a Master?s in Theology in 1982.

During his time as an actor, Chris has developed a love for all of those who put their hearts up on the stage, be they actors, directors, assistant directors, stage managers, set designers, Lighting designers, etc... He is aware of the work and courage involved and knows that sometimes things turn out great and sometimes they don?t. He believes that whatever the result, each production must be treated with respect for the love and effort that went into them.

Chris is very excited to be a part of The Column team.
