BOBBY BLOOM, directed The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) and has played the roles of Puck (A Midsummer Night's Dream), Claudio (Much Ado About Nothing), Valentine (Two Gentlemen of Verona), and Benvolio (Romeo and Juliet).
RUFUS CARSON, has been a member of the company since 1994, providing lighting design and equipment mostly for the spring and fall shows. After earning an engineering degree in 1991, Rufasa was bitten by an unfortunate bug, jumping feet first into the backstage business. A visual sense of balance and connection in art, architecture, and light, with the obligatory OCD and ADD, drives the Rufalo to methodically and thoughtfully paint an environment with every color of photon available. This is all done skillfully for the Bard with the most blunt of light fixture: the humble and butt-ugly Par Can (hey - it’s outdoors, it rains, it's community theater, sadly there won't be Vari*Lites fluttering about).

In 2009, the Rufii started Ambient Media, a local company which provides lighting, rigging, design, and technical solutions for special events of all kinds. This includes theatrical shows, receptions & banquets, concerts, fundraisers, corporate presentations, trade shows, etc. “Our mission is to spread photonic magic up in there, to subtly and/or dramatically make an impact on perceptions through lighting, rigging, and visual effects, because we're crazy like that”. For electric eye candy you can visit AmbientMediaSC.com, or Facebook for volumes more.

Rufeo has served music and acting productions of every kind, mostly around the southeastern US, based out of Columbia and Charleston, and has logged over 60,000 hours in the business. He has worked on and for innumerable major artists' tours, corporate presentations, and audio visual production companies, from Mr Knozit to U2 to the President. No rigging performed by Delufus has ever failed and injured anyone… and he wishes you luck in not being the first. He has been a member of the Int'l Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees since 1994, serving at times as Local 347's Treasurer and Business Agent. In that capacity Rufenol has served as crew chief for shows at Colonial Life Arena and Williams Brice Stadium, managing stage employees by the dozens and hundreds per show (which he likens to herding cats).

Enthusiastically, Rufilius brings illumination to this timeless production so that you may enjoy- in darkness, light, or a thousand shades betwixt- the living treasure that is the SC Shakespeare Company.
CHIP COLLINS, has been a company actor since 1999. He has portrayed Time in The Winter's Tale, Sebastian in The Rover, The Barber in Man of La Mancha, Sir Andrew Aguecheek in Twelfth Night, and Porthos in The Three Musketeers.
