Brenton Wright

Brenton Daniel Wright, AB’10, studied physics at the University of Chicago and was master electrician at Court Theatre, located on the University campus. Wright worked on more than 25 shows during his six-year tenure at the professional theater company.

"Brenton lit our stages and our lives,” said Court Theatre executive director Stephen J. Albert. "We were fortunate to witness a promising first act to what should have been a wonderful second and third act. We will miss him, particularly this month as we begin the season without him.”

Wright, 27, passed away on Thursday, August 6, 2014, in Bishop, CA, from injuries sustained from a climbing accident.
