Scott Faris originally from California, attended USIU in San Diego and started his career performing in commercials, industrials & musicals, among them A Chorus Line.
He stole most of his directing skills while working as a production stage manager and supervisor for some of the best directors on Broadway on productions like City of Angels, Les Miserables, Cabaret, Cats, Grease, Busker Alley, Ain’t Misbehavin’, Children of a Lesser God, and Whistle Down The Wind. He has directed over a dozen productions of the hit musical Chicago on five continents. In Las Vegas, he directed “EFX!” at the MGM Grand Hotel, and Bette Midler – The Show Must Go On at Caesars Palace; and was part of the production team that created Siegfried & Roy at the Mirage Hotel. He conceived and directed George Lucas Live Adventure, a multi-media arena spectacular that played Japan’s largest arenas.
A personal highlight was helping Bette Midler return to the stage in her tour, “Experience the Divine”. Scott lives in New York City with his daughter, Emily, who attends the High School of the Performing Arts, the school made famous by the movie “Fame.”
