Division Spotlight


David Inabinette, Sottile Theatre

Briefly describe your role.

The Sottile Theatre has many events a year, all with varying degrees of complexity and components. This is where a technical director (TD) comes into play. The TD ensures that all technical aspects of any given show are executed smoothly and that the client is happy.

What is the function of your department?

The Sottile Theatre brings all types of art to the Charleston area and to the College of Charleston.

How long have you been working at the College?

I was working as a temporary employee for the College for approximately 3 years. I came on as a full-time employee this past October.

What brought you to the College?

I was attracted to the College by its history and promotion for the arts. Additionally, there are some wonderful people here at the college and it is a pleasure to work with them.

What do you like most about your job?

The thing I like most about my job is that I’m able to be a part of all kinds of shows. Everything from large national operas, dance companies that have been doing shows for years, to small productions doing their first show.

What are some of your favorite memories from the College?

I would have to say some of my favorite memories from my time at the College are the late nights spent at the theatre. After a long day of tech and rehearsals, the crew relies on humor to break up the stress.

What are your hobbies and interests?

I would have to say my biggest interest would be technology. Ever since I was a pre-teen in thick glasses, I was taking apart computers and small engine motors just to see how they worked.

What is something that your colleagues would be surprised to learn about you?

Something that most of my colleagues would not know about me is that if I’m not at work or resting at home, I’m out working on a 20 acre horse farm tending to either the animals or the land itself.
