Rhys Williams

Position: Vice President, Production
Categories: Production

Rhys has technically supervised every show that Work Light has ever produced – from the very first Broadway Junior show, then many more including Avenue Q, American Idiot, Mamma Mia!, and Motown, and now the exciting roster of shows WLP is currently producing including RENT, Ain’t Too Proud and Jesus Christ Superstar. Rhys is based in Charleston, SC where he runs “Work Light South”, the Production arm of WLP. In the early years of Work Light (and before), Rhys did some cool things like working at Spoleto Festival USA for 35 years (including 15 years as the Festival’s Director of Production), being the Assistant Production Manager on the original Broadway productions of Les Misérables and The Phantom of the Opera, working for over 20 years with Lee Breuer on shows including Peter and Wendy and Mabou Mines Dollhouse, and supervising the installation of dozens of shows on Disney Cruise Line ships. Rhys is a proud member of IATSE local #645. In his personal life he is an avid Philadelphia sports fan (Eagles and Sixers), loves cooking dinner for his family, and with the time allowed by the pandemic is working his way to earning his 2nd degree black belt in Kempo karate.
