Christopher Henley began acting (1979) and directing (1980) around DC with Source Theatre Company. He was a founding Ensemble Member at WSC Avant Bard (formerly Washington Shakespeare Company); was its Artistic Director for more than 16 years; and continues as its Artistic Director Emeritus and as a member of the Acting Company. Under his leadership, WSC was a vital part of the developing small professional theatre scene. As a producer, director, and actor, he shepherded dozens of productions, many of which were critically acclaimed and award-winning, and provided high-profile opportunities to scores of emerging actors, directors, and designers. Other theaters at which he has worked include SCENA Theatre (founding company member), Longacre Lea Productions, Folger Theatre, Quotidian Theatre Company, and Ambassador Theatre, in addition to several companies no longer functioning, such as Cherry Red Productions, Spheres Theatre Company, The American Century Theater, and Moving Target Theatre.
