Stephen Toney

With a strong passion for lighting design, Stephen knows theatre front to back. From teaching at Coastal Carolina University to working at Cory’s Audio Visual, he brings a passion for theatrics, lighting, and the artistry behind both. He loves traveling with his family and attending Scottish festivals to listen to the highland bagpipes.  When not catching the latest movie, Stephen enjoys going for walks around the Oklahoma City parks and going to baseball games in Bricktown.
