A 2017 graduate, he was seen at Ithaca in several productions including “Company” as Bobby and “Titanic” as Jim Farrell. He has also worked locally at The Walnut Street Theatre and People’s Light. At Hope Summer Repertory Theatre, he was in “Les Miserables”, “To Kill A Mockingbird”, and “The Winter’s Tale”.

“Having these talented young men join the youth ensemble adds another avenue of education and experience,” said The Media Theatre’s Artistic Director Jesse Cline. “It’s a terrific way for the summer camp ensemble to learn more, first hand, about what it takes to be a professional.”

“Into The Woods” is on stage for four weekends, July 7 through July 30. Cline directs the show, with The Media Theatre’s Resident Music Director Ben Kapilow conducting. For tickets, call 610-891-0100 or GET TICKETS HERE
