Christie Vela

A Texas native, Christie couldn’t be happier about her return to Trinity Rep and this amazing city. The last time you saw her on the stage was in King Lear as Goneril. Since then, she’s been focusing more on directing than acting. As a member of Dallas Theater Center’s Resident Acting Company she’s appeared in many productions, some of her favs include God of Carnage, Inherit The Wind, A Christmas Carol, Sense & Sensibility, The Book Club Play and Medea. Her directing credits at DTC include A Christmas Carol, Gloria and Fade. Some of her most recent directing credits in North Texas include Titus Andronicus, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Straight White Men, Paper Flowers and Night Mother. Christie will return to Dallas to direct Don’t Dress for Dinner and The Moors but hopes to make coming to Providence a habit.
