“The Lost Colony” Outdoor Drama, 84th Season

In 2020, I was cast as an actor-technician in the 83rd season of THE LOST COLONY Outdoor Drama, but the pandemic hit & the show was canceled. It was a punch to the gut, as I had been looking forward to walking the same sandy stage Andy Griffith once roamed in his early years. But 2021 provided a second chance: not only did I play the speaking role of Captain Arthur Barlowe night after night in the opening scene (pictured above), but I also sang, danced, & performed as a member of the Ensemble throughout the show. I also worked behind the scenes as an Assistant Technical Director building sets & lighting towers. April & May were a whirlwind of preparation & rehearsal, & we successfully opened the show on May 28th, 2021. The season ran through the summer into August of 2021: 74 shows in total!

Theatre of Dare’s “The Mousetrap” (October, 2022)

I played Detective Sergeant Trotter in Theatre of Dare’s rendition of “The Mousetrap,” the longest-running play in the world. I was excited to play a pivotal lead role, originally played by Richard Attenborough! The show was sold out all six nights.
