About Bostin Christopher
Whether in the medium of film/tv or that of the theatre, and whether he’s acting, directing or producing, Bostin Christopher considers himself a storyteller.
Bostin Christopher works at Perseverance Theatre in Alaska as a director/actor/administrator. His passion lies in new play development. He has served as a guest artist, and/or workshop leader at the Last Frontier Theatre Conference (LFTC), the Great Plains Theatre Conference (GPTC), and the William Inge Center for the Arts. He has also helped facilitate and workshop new plays with NYSF/Public Theatre’s New Work Now!, Moving Arts, and Perseverance Theatre.
He most recently directed Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps at Perseverance and will next be directing Harold Pinter’s Betrayal for Perseverance and Bruce Norris’ Clybourne Park for Cyrano’s Theatre. Some previous directing credits: World Premiere of Arlitia Jones’ Make Good the Fires, Dawson Moore’s The Tie, and A.R. Gurney’s Sylvia, which played at the LFTC a billion years ago.
As an actor he most recently was Lennie in Perseverance Theatre’s Of Mice and Men, as well as Lee Wochner’s original He Said She Said, which played in LA and at the GPTC in Omaha. Previous acting credits include a couple new plays Off-Broadway (Kit Marlowe, Ice Island) and too many shows to count where he had to wear his own clothes and bring in his spatula as a prop.
If you really need more Bostin, you can have him in your face anytime by watching the movies Unbreakable, Otis, Scorpion King 3 or In My Pocket and the upcoming Frozen Ground. You might also accidentally catch him in old reruns of Law & Order and Ed among others, and you might be able to get a few laughs if you can find some of his commercials online.
Bostin Christopher received his BA from University of Alaska, Anchorage and his MFA from the Professional Actor Training Program at PlayMaker’s Repertory Company/UNC-Chapel Hill.
