  • Rande Harris

    Rande Harris -- (1953 – 2015)

    She had a true love of theater, horses and was a giving mentor and caring friend. Rande Harris' knowledge and expertise of wigs, make-up and costuming will be missed not only by her brothers and sisters of Local 706, but to the numerous "minions" she mentored and encouraged. Although she had a long history with theater, she worked as a paralegal for a number of years before returning to her true love. She started with local community groups and then began working on the hair/make-up crew at the American Musical Theater of San Jose where she met her mentors, 706 members Sharon Ridge and Robin Church. The American Ballet Theater, Ballet San Jose, Lamplighters, Balagan Theater, Santa Clara Performing Arts, San Jose Civic Light Opera, Lyric Opera, American Musical Theater , San Jose Cleveland Ballet and touring companies kept her in demand, going from production to production. Rande became a Local 706 Regional member in 2003 and became the resident Hair and Makeup Designer at the West Bay Opera and in 2008 she traveled with Ballet San Jose to China.
