BACKLIT: Craig Bond

Craig Bond is the Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Vintage Theatre. Originally from Watkins Glen, New York, Bond moved to Colorado in 1996 to work with the Central City Opera. After a stint at Central City and then at the Arvada Center, Bond and three friends founded the Vintage Theatre in 2001. He has been involved with visual arts — specifically theatre — since he was 17 years old, when he was in his first stage production. When attending Elmira College, he took advantage of the small class size and worked in every single theatrical performance possible, staying involved in every aspect he could, whether being on stage or as a stage manager. Bond is also an active tennis player and has been a regular on the courts since 1984. Sentinel Portrait by Philip B. Poston
