Catching Up with Entertainment Business Alum Chase Thomas
Chase has his hands in Musical Theatre, Documentary Filmmaking, and Netflix’s Dahmer Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.
Alumnus Chase Thomas hasn’t slowed down since we last interviewed him about producing Broadway hits A Christmas Carol and Jagged Little Pill. In fact, his workload has tripled. Many doors have opened for our Entertainment Business alum since graduating in 2020. Besides being nominated for 2021 Broadway Global Producer of the Year, Chase has transitioned into VFX television production and working for Thomas Global Media.
Let’s See What Chase Thomas is Working on Now
Can you share what projects have been keeping you busy?
Jagged Little Pill, VP of Thomas Global Media (Jess & JoJo Siwa XOMG POP!), FX’s American Crime Story: Impeachment, HBO’s Raised By Wolves, and Netflix’s Dahmer Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.
Now that you’ve been producing and working off-Broadway for two years, how has your workload changed?
My workload has tripled and I am very blessed for that. Working on Broadway while being nominated for the “2021 Broadway Global Producer of the Year” has opened so many new doors for me. While producing on Broadway, I transitioned into VFX television production as a Production Coordinator at FuseFX and become the Vice-President of Thomas Global Media at Trilith Studios (Disney, Marvel). At FuseFX, I was the VFX Production Coordinator on FX’s American Crime Story: Impeachment, HBO’s Raised By Wolves (season 2), and Netflix’s Dahmer Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.
What was the experience like opening a show at the Pantages Theatre so close to your Alma Mater?
AMAZING! I brought clients JoJo Siwa, Avery Cyrus, and Christian Thomas to the opening night. If anyone is interested, here is a review of Jagged Little Pill from Broadway World Los Angeles.
