Explain what shows you are in this summer: I am in all three MainStage productions (‘Newsies’, ‘Mamma Mia!’ and ‘West Side Story’) at Rocky Mountain Rep! We alternate shows and do a different one each night with one day off a week. Most of us have a mix of an ensemble, supporting, and leading roles.
Tell us about your roles: In ‘Newsies’ I play Jack Kelly who is the fearless leader of the Newsboys who strike against William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer in 1899. I am in the ensemble in ‘Mamma Mia!’ and in ‘West Side Story’, I play a shark named Pepe!
What should audiences take away from Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre? Audiences will hopefully take away a joyful experience that allowed them to escape their real world problems/stress for a few hours. We work hard to tell our stories and simply hope the audiences can sit back, relax, and truly enjoy.
One interesting fact about yourself: I am a twin!
