Chris Luner is a 26-year old theatre administrator living in New York City. Born and raised in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, Chris has involved himself in all aspects of theatre working as a performer, technician and administrator through various organizations along the East Coast.
Chris began in theatre as a performer in middle school and continued performing through the end of his high school career. Seeking to still work in the business, Chris attended Wagner College where he began as a Theatre Design, Technology and Management major before later switching to pursue a degree in Arts Administration with a theatre concentration. During his time at Wagner, Chris worked with the nationally recognized Wagner College Theatre Department on over a dozen productions in various roles before graduating with honors in 2013.
Since graduating college, Chris has worked on Broadway, Off-Broadway, a national tour and in various regional theaters along the East Coast. While Chris mainly focuses in working as a stage manager, assistant stage manager and production manager, he has and is willing to take on any opportunity presented to him. Chris serves as the production manager at Upper Darby Summer stage, which is home to over 700 participants and 100 staff members each summer in his hometown of Upper Darby.
Dan Luner is a 24-year old public relations professional living in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Deciding early on in his career to remain close to his roots, Dan serves as Luner on Theatre’s Philadelphia Correspondent.
Currently, Dan is the Program Administrator for the Envestnet Institute On Campus, based out of Berwyn. He earned his B.A. in Communication not far away at Cabrini University and graduated Magna Cum Laude.
Dan started his work in theatre as a technician in middle school and flipped between the roles of performer and technician until the end of high school. After graduating high school, Dan spent his summer interning at Upper Darby Summer Stage in their marketing department, but it wasn’t until after Dan’s second summer working there that he realized he could combine his degree and love of theatre into something unique.
Since that breakthrough, he spent three more summers in the department where he learned many of the skills he uses daily at Envestnet. Dan ultimately hopes his time with Luner on Theatre will drive engagement and attendance to the various shows and performances he covers throughout the Greater Philadelphia Area.
