Operations Staff

David McRae
Director of Technical Operations

Dave has been involved in the entertainment business since his childhood, performing in school musicals, and playing in different bands throughout his school years and beyond. After studying recording engineering at Fanshawe College, he switched from performance to the production side of the industry, and has since toured extensively with a number of different artists, as well as being involved in many major musical, sporting, ecumenical, and cultural events. Dave’s first job after relocating to Vancouver was installing the sound and communications systems in what was to become the Michael J. Fox Theatre. Proud to be a member of the team at the theatre, Dave uses his years of experience to help produce the best possible performances and events for all of the theatre’s clients.
