Jason Kramer, Founder and Creative Director of Gabriel Design Theatricals, has worked in theater for 25 years as a designer, fabricator, painter, and educator. An award-winning graduate of Philadelphia's University of the Arts, Jason holds a B.Sc. in Design and Theater. 

Jason's resume includes work on Broadway's Aida, Scarlet Pimpernel, and Taller Than a Dwarf, and Cirque Du Soleil's Dralion, as well as numerous regional professional theaters. His creations have been seen on the stages of more than 500 theaters and entertainment venues throughout the U.S. and abroad, and have been commissioned by institutions such as the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Philadelphia and Minnesota Zoos,

Visa, and others.

Gabriel Design's creations have been used by Broadway's leading performers, including Alice Ripley, Tony Yazbeck, Kate Shindle and Tituss Burgess. In addition, over the past ten years, Gabriel Design has rented its pieces to hundreds of schools and smaller theaters.

Jason founded Gabriel Design Theatricals to support U.S. and international theaters, educational institutions, and entertainment companies by providing unique props and creatures for purchase and rental.

With a steadfast commitment to environmental conservation, each
piece
is fabricated and shipped as conscientiously as possible, using carbon-neutral shipping on more than 95% of our shipments. In addition,

we proudly donate a portion of proceeds to global environmental

and humanitarian causes.
