Galen G. Ramsey

Ensemble Member

Galen G. Ramsey (AEA) retired from College of DuPage after 15 years as the resident Property Master and occasional sound/set designer for the college theatre program, Buffalo Theatre Ensemble, and DuPage Opera Theatre. Previously he was the resident Equity Stage Manager at Victory Gardens Theatre for 12 years. Galen’s professional career began at the Cherry County Playhouse while still in college where he worked with Ted Knight, Vivian Vance, Donald O’Conner, Dick Shawn, the Smothers Brothers and Broderick Crawford. Favorite memory: receiving his union card (Actors Equity) for Assistant Stage Managing Born Yesterday with Mr. Crawford. As an ensemble member of BTE, he was pleased to see that this professional company had been revived at the MAC and the College of DuPage. BTE has been an important element of creative growth not only for Ramsey and his fellow ensemble members, but also the students who become involved thru working on the productions and as audience members. It is a resource for the students and the public to experience new ideas and creative expression in a live venue. He hopes that this valuable interaction between professional artists, students, faculty and staff, and the public, will continue. Thank you for supporting BTE.
