Superior Technical Support:

F. Patrick Orr teaches students the proper ways to use large stationary power tools in accordance with OSHA safety regulations; he also singled-handedly oversees every production mounted at Royall Tyler Theatre, from scenery construction to electrical coordination of lighting and sound. Highlighting his 29 years of service and dedication to the department and its students, faculty described Patrick as "the consummate professional" and "a one-man work force" who never shuns responsibilities, often working after hours, weekends, and even holidays (including volunteering to play Santa Claus in "The Toys Take Over Christmas" for the past 21 years).
