Kristi Rau McIntyre
Of course it’s hard. The hard is what makes it great. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it.” from the movie “A League of Their Own”
Kristi Rau McIntyre has worked in theatre professionally for 19 years, is a founding company member of Atlantic Stage in Myrtle Beach, and is a proud member of Actor’s Equity Association. Kris graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Master of Fine Arts in Acting in 2001, after earning her Bachelor of Arts in Theatre/Communication from North Carolina State University in 1998, which is where she met her husband when they were both cast in Agatha Christie’s Murder at the Vicarage. She also received her Meisner Technique teaching certification for her work with Larry Silverberg, and is a Yoga Alliance Board certified yoga instructor. Since 2002 she has been teaching in the Theatre Department at Coastal Carolina University, where she also acted in A Lie of the Mind and Hamlet, and directed Baby with the Bathwater, and she feels lucky to have spent her summers directing the next generation of theatre practitioners in the annual Summer Arts Academy. She also loves serving the greater community of theatre by serving on the Boards of the South Carolina Theatre Association and the Southeastern Theatre Conference. During the rare moments in which Kris is not involved in theatre you can find her playing bar trivia, or watching UNC basketball and Steelers football with her husband Marc and their two extremely spoiled dachshunds, Bailey and Fiona.
