Personal Bio

      John Chase is the Artistic Director of Merlyn Productions Theatre Company, and also the Adult Theatre Instructor at its theatre school. As a Winnipeg actor and director, he has produced, directed, stage managed or performed in ninety productions on stage and radio.

      John worked extensively in children's theatre with Fantasy Theatre for Children, both on and behind the FTC mainstage for twenty seasons (1991 - 2011). He directed multiple shows for G.D. Productions (FTC's adult arm), and is an alumnus of The Theatre School, where he obtained five years of formal training under Tony Frost in the early-to-mid 1990s.

      As one half of Chase & Hamill on the local comedy scene, John can be found portraying quintessential straight man Bud Abbott of Abbott & Costello fame, alongside performing partner Kevin Hamill (Lou Costello).
