1. Chris Champlin
Chris Champlin likes to call himself “an agent of the collective.” The Overtime Theater’s sole employee, Champlin does a little bit of everything, from answering phones and working the box office to helping build sets. Champlin helped guide the Overtime through its latest relocation/expansion. Exiting stage left from Blue Star amid the Art Complex’s reconstruction last year, “the people’s theater” has settled nicely into its new digs right off the River Walk’s Museum Reach. The closest thing San Antonio has to fringe, off-beat theater, Champlin’s a good Overtime spokesman. On a recent visit, he showed up with aviator goggles and a safari hat in tow. He began growing out his beard soon after he finished his days as a military contractor. His latest beard — for which he’s very well known, apparently — sports about three years’ growth.
