Jules Lauve III
With over 40 years in the entertainment industry, Jules brings a unique perspective to our clients. His responsibilities include project management, theatre design, performance equipment systems design, and advice on facility management and operations.
Jules came to Theatre Projects from Las Vegas where he produced, managed, and represented entertainment productions for numerous clients. From 1993 to 1999, Jules was director of entertainment for the Treasure Island Casino Hotel, serving as the primary liaison with Cirque du Soleil’s Mystère and the producer for the fiery Buccaneer Bay Sea Battle. Prior to that, he was the stage manager at the Mirage Hotel where he contributed greatly to the success of the Las Vegas high-tech spectacle, Siegfried & Roy. Outside of Las Vegas, Jules has an extensive background in scenery and lighting design for theatre, opera, ballet, and large touring productions.
Jules received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in theatre from the Stephen F. Austin State University and attended the Master of Fine Arts program at the University of Southern California. He’s the immediate past president of the Entertainment Services and Technology Association (ESTA) and a past board member of the Behind the Scenes Foundation. Outside of the office, he can often be found in the middle of an adventure—he ran in the USA’s first Running of the Bulls, he loves to hunt deer, and he also collects wild stories about things that have happened to him on his travels.
Jules in action
It takes a village to create a special place for a community to call home. Our team brings together specialists with backgrounds in the performing arts, architecture, mechanical engineering, lighting design, acoustics, and more to offer a holistic approach to creating, renovating, or repurposing all forms of storytelling spaces. We understand the decisions that need to be made at every stage of the project and we know how to make a performance space work for artists, audience, and production teams.
