Chas Mathieu

Set Designer (Theatre)

My name is Charles "Chas" Mathieu and I was born in Mexico and grew up in Park Ridge, IL.  I've recently graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a BFA in Theatre Design with a condentration in set design.  My most recent set design was Columbia College Chiago's mainstage production of "Little Shop of Horrors" (March 2017).  Previous design credits include: "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" and "Peter Pan."


From a young I was drawing, building, and creating.  As it came time to find a career path scenic design for theatre was a way to maintain and use all of my talents in one fashion or another.  Unlike other, but related mediums, the theatre requires the audience to be in the room and as a designer that's extremely powerful and rewarding - a feeling you can't get with other art forms.
