Technical Director and Sound Designer
Doug Greene
Doug was bitten by the theater bug in 1976, and he has pursued it in many different forms since then. First as an actor, and then moving into technical theater, where his horizons expanded into media, film, and video production. He was a director of video production for 14 years at the University of Rhode Island's Ryan Center, and most recently did a three-season stint with the National Football League as an audio specialist. But live theater has always been his greatest love and heartfelt enjoyment.

Co-Editor and Production Assistant
Gail Chesler
Gail spent almost her entire career working for non-profits in many capacities. She started with the performing arts when she produced outdoor concerts on Long Island, managing all technical, booking, and fundraising aspects. She was later primarily in fundraising, with a specialty in Planned Giving. Gail received a Master’s in Performing Arts Administration from NYU. An advocate of making one’s avocation one’s vocation, in 2000 she was made Director of Planned & Special Gifts at the Metropolitan Opera, which she considers the culmination and highlight of her career. She retired from the Met in 2012 but she is still a voracious consumer of opera, her “art of choice” and continues to watch opera streams several times a week. Gail serves on three boards of directors: her co-op board, Two Pianos: Playing for Life, and the American Lyric Theater. She is proud to be working with the Psych Drama Company because she is a strong believer in its unique mission.
