Stage Monkey

Chip Hunter

2023 FAPA Award Winner

Swinging from cables like a chimp while focusing amber glows and shocking spotlights on some of the most talented characters marching across the American stage, Chip Hunter takes readers on an adventure in theatre production in his memoir Stage Monkey. His look back to his days on the road, behind the curtains, and above the bright lights tells the story of a young man eager to experience the sensation of showbiz while discovering the grueling and rewarding realities of a thespian lifestyle.

As Chip becomes a confident stage professional, his entertaining chronicle demonstrates how solid grounding in this ancient art form becomes a fitting platform for surviving the slings and arrows of rising adulthood--perhaps revealing the ticket to wisdom that the stage-loving Greeks, Romans, Shakespeare, Noel Coward, and Tennessee Williams figured out long ago.
