Dan Schay (1952 – 2016)


Dan Schay

Dan Schay (DC) left this world on April 7th in Phoenix, Arizona. It is almost impossible to catalogue all things Dan had done and all the places he worked, but they can all be unified under one theme: his passion for the theatre. Dan held many positions (actor, director, producer, fundraiser or senior manager) at and with theatres and repertory groups throughout the country. Nationally recognized for his work, he served as a site visitor for the National Endowments for the Arts for many years and, in 2015, was named a Piper Fellow by the Virginia Piper Charitable Trust, which honors the highest level of charitable organization leadership in Maricopa County (http://pipertrust.org/nonprofit-support/piper-fellows-recipients/piper-fellow-recipients-2015/) . Dan is survived by his wife, Barbra, son, Adam, and a large extended family. We will miss this larger than life member of our class.
