Assassins at The Costa Mesa Playhouse

Posted on March 7, 2014 | 10:27am

From theater patron to director, David Blair has played many roles at the Costa Mesa Playhouse.  When Blair went to see a production 8 years ago, the passion and talent of the actors inspired him. He knew that he wanted to be a part of the community theater, so he auditioned for a show.  After 6 years at the Costa Mesa Playhouse, Blair has done a little bit of everything to keep audiences entertained, including acting and directing as well as duties away from the spotlight like working the box office and recruiting volunteers.
