Not necessarily something to which I gave much thought until I was cast as Antonio in 12th Night.  I like him as a character, I think I understand many of his emotions and motivations, but I don’t think he’s inherently funny. 

Which is okay – a comedy in which...

What makes a Shakespearean character “good” or “bad”? In much of my work with Pigeon Creek this issue doesn’t arise: I tend to present as a relatively genial, like-able guy, and the majority of my roles so far accept and play with that reality.

“Mr. Vesbit! You’re dead! So, why are your feet moving?”

It’s the day before opening night, and things are not going well.

The current production of 'As You Like It' marks my tenth show with PCSC over the last 3 ½ years. Once again, I am struck by the unique challenges performing with a group that has no fixed home base.

I am, primarily, a visual artist. I graduated Olivet College in 2012, majoring in Visual Art K-12 Education. Though I was heavily involved in theatre throughout college, I always showed up to rehearsals with clay under my fingernails and plaster dust in my hair. I fini...

I am playing the role of the Earl of Warwick in Pigeon Creek’s upcoming production of Henry VI.  This production will be unique in that Shakespeare wrote the Henry VI chronicles in three plays covering the Wars of the Roses (1455-1487).  He wrote it in three parts beca...

When audiences come to see Pigeon Creek shows, there are a number of things they can
expect to see.

1.) Really awesome Shakespeare performances
2.) All of the other audience member (we perform with universal lighting)
