Raine is a professional Artist/Illustrator seeking to revitalize and enrich our nation’s most valued resources; its citizens and communities, by capturing in his artwork and murals, the unique individuals and historical events that made this country what it is today. Raine’s artwork has been published in several military publications such as Link, Surface Warfare, and Navy News. He has historical pieces displayed on Naval ships, various military commands, recruiting and reserve centers across the country, including the White House in Washington, DC. He has been classified as a Naval Historian for his works on Naval history.

Raine joined the Navy in 1983. He was first stationed in Norfolk, VA where he served on board the USS Newport LST-1179, the USS Shenandoah AD-44, and on SURFLANT’s Admiral Staff. In 1988 Raine continued his career in the Navy by joining the Navy Reserves.

The Navy was very careful in selecting DMs. In 1984 only 15 DM billets were available to fill out of 21 qualified applicants in the entire Navy. Raine was selected first across the board. In the 1980’s there were over 400 DMs in the Navy and upon his retirement in 2004 there were only 46. Historically; Raine was the Navy’s last reservist DM when he retired in April 2004.

In January 2003, Raine was recalled to active duty, where he served on the front lines in Iraq for Naval Security in the Middle East. Even though his main line of duty was physical security to protect the Middle East U.S. Central Command and the airstrip in Bahrain, he was the only Navy DM there. Therefore, during this time Raine created artwork and technical illustrations to support the Naval Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS) and other attached command’s.

In regard to Raine’s professional illustrations, he was chosen to serve on three separate admiral staffs during his Naval career. He served as ISO for Noble Eagle and Enduring Freedom in Iraq. Before retiring from his Naval career he received four US Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, the Coast Guard Meritorious Unit Commendation medal (among other service awards for his intelligence work (technical illustrations) he produced in response to the September 11th terrorist attacks), two Navy Meritorious Unit Commendation medals, Joint Meritorious Unit Commendation medal, four Armed Forces Service medals, Armed Forces Expeditionary medal, three Battle “E”s, and was awarded nine other medals. REDCOM photographed Raine’s artwork at the Broken Arrow Naval Reserve Center to classify his art as preserved Naval history and designated Raine as a “Navy Historian Artist”.

As a staff artist for Columbia Pictures Entertainment, Raine also illustrated artwork for Walt Disney Productions, Gulf Western, TIME, Warner Bros., Tri-Star Entertainment, Branson Teleproductions, and Percussion Entertainment. In the music publishing realm he designed many folio’s and sheet music covers for entertainers such as Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Hank Williams Jr., Clint Black, as well as others. Beyond the entertainment industry, he has produced artwork for corporations such as JC Penney, Radio Shack, Comp USA, Boeing, McDonald Douglas, Texas Instruments, Raytheon, Bass Pro and others. Most recently he has done several large historic murals for businesses, cities and towns across the US and at various museums such as the

World’s Largest Toy Museum, The Harold Bell Wright Museum, the American Presidential Museum, the Branson Auto & Farm Museum, Celebrity Car Museum in Branson, MO, as well as O’Fallon Historical Museum in Baker, MT, and the VanHorn Historical Museum in ND.

To present date, Raine has worked on over 170 detailed, hand-painted murals and gallery pieces. Some of his murals of American history are as large as sixty-feet high and with lengths of three hundred-feet long.

About the musical…
Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved stories and the classic animated film, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner, Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater and a compelling book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs, including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl” and “Part of Your World.”
Ariel, King Triton’s youngest daughter, wishes to pursue the human Prince Eric in the world above, bargaining with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to trade her tail for legs. But the bargain is not what it seems, and Ariel needs the help of her colorful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab to restore order under the sea.
There will be seventeen (17) public performances of The Little Mermaid over a three-week period of time in February. This will be the first of eight (8) mainstage productions at the Historic Owen Theatre in downtown Branson in the 2022 season.

Rated PG-13 |Some Adult Language & Situations

Set in the late 1970s. This hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic. Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can’t she?

This high-energy show is not only a blast for those on the stage, but also for everyone in the audience! With its jubilant score and easily relatable characters, 9 to 5 is the perfect show to bring to our community this September.
