Mr. Paul Garza
My name is Paul Garza and I am the new Technical/Assistant Director at Thurgood Marshall High School in Missouri City, Tx. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Technical Theatre and Drama with a minor in music and psychology from Texas State University in San Marcos, Tx. I also have an Associate Degree in Computer Maintenance Technology with emphasis on Digital Electronics from St. Philip’s College in San Antonio, Tx. I have been working in the entertainment business for over 45 years as both a performer on stage and a stage technician. I’ve had the privilege of working with ETC (a leading light equipment manufacturer), Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Nashville Entertainment Network, Belterra Casino/Resort, and Heartland Scenic Studio. I became the Technical Director of the 2nd oldest theatre in America, The San Pedro Playhouse (formally known as “San Antonio Little Theatre”) in San Antonio for 10 years. During my tenure there I have produced over 320 shows of every kind from musicals, dramas, and children show’s to non-traditional productions like hosting the San Antonio Symphony or during Fiesta week for the coronation of our Fiesta Queens. I have been teaching for the past 5 years and I look forward to working/teaching at Marshall high school.
