Christy has worked extensively in the Salt Lake area as an actor and director in film and theatre, working with such companies as Pioneer Theater Company, Plan B Theatre Company and Salt Lake Acting Company.

Clarisa Johnston

(Set Design/Prop Master) Born and raised in the city of Salt Lake, Clarisa spent a decade in California studying Architecture at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Clarisa is the owner and content creator behind ClarisaAlice LLC, which allows her to combine her love of design and art with her greatest creation – her children. Resident Set Designer here at Scaffold Theatre, Clarisa was responsible for designing the romantic scenery for our Valentine show last February, Forever More! And is has out done herself once more this Halloween with the spooktacular Nevermore!

Candice Bahe

(Costume Designer) Candice had a taste of her career designing the costumes for her school’s play in 4th grade. Embracing the DIY aesthetic, she’s been sewing and knitting her own clothes before she decided to attend Fashion design classes at the Academy of Art University. In 2021, she quit her full-time job to pursue a costuming career primarily in film and commercials. She switches from all the roles in the costume department and also has a background in hair and makeup, which helps on small productions. Whether it’s creating new pieces from scratch or sourcing from local boutiques, researching and helping create depth to characters is the most intriguing part of it. She’s excited to be trying something new and stepping into designing for the theatre.
