He has been a member of the professional designers union, United Scenic Artists, since 1967. He worked in Denver, CO from 1966 until he moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1982. His career while in Colorado included being Resident Designer for Bonfils Theatre, a top level community theatre and a stint as Assistant Professor of Theatre at Loretto Heights College in Denver, CO and the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO teaching theatrical design and technology.. Upon moving to Seattle, WA in 1982, he took on the role of Resident Designer for the Village Theatre in Issaquah, WA. That position covered approximately three years. His career then turned to one of free-lance design for a number of venues such as Seattle Children's Theatre, Tacoma Actors Guild, ACT Theatre, Renton Civic Theatre and Bellevue Civic Theatre as well as designing sets, lighting and costumes for several educational institutions around Washington, notable Bellevue Community College, Bellevue School District's Youth Theatre and the Wenatchee School District.

Barbara Pease Weber has been acting in the Philadelphia theater community on and off for the past 35 years. She has had the privilege of portraying all sorts of wonderful characters throughout the decades including Stella in A Streetcar Named Desire, Mama in I Remember Mama, Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and most recently, Sister Aloysius Beauvier in Doubt, A Parable. She met her husband John in 1976 when they were both 18 and performing in a play. In the late 1990s after taking some years off from acting to get married and raise their two daughters, Barbara and John were cast in a Philly production of Moon Over the Brewery. Author Bruce Graham came the opening night performance. After meeting Bruce at the opening night party, John began to pester Barbara to write a play. He reasoned that if Bruce Graham could write a play, so too could Barbara. John would not let up on his firm notion that Barbara should somehow concoct a story and write a play. In an effort to quiet John's relentless pestering, Barbara sat down at their computer and began to write. Since then, with enormous thanks to John's sixth sense, persistence, pestering and unwavering support, Barbara has written six comedy plays, four of which, Delval Divas, HOGWASH!, Seniors of the Sahara and A Crock of Schnitzel, are published by Baker's Plays in New York and have been performed in theaters and schools all over the country and internationally. Barbara's two new comedies are The Witch in 204, a sequel to her hugely successful Seniors of the Sahara, which premiered at The Old Academy in Philadelphia in September 2011 and The Pearl, which Barbara and John are thrilled will premiere at Theatre West in Lincoln City, Oregon over the summer of 2012. John still has some wild and crazy notions now and again. But, Barbara now pays a lot closer attention since some of his wild ideas are not so all so crazy after all.
