Tarzan at the Rose

This summer I’m working on Tarzan at the Rose Theater.  I’m having a blast as one of the apes swinging through the jungle.  We opened this weekend (read more about that here) and run through June 22nd.  Be sure to get your tickets soon!

Spring Update

It’s almost spring here in Omaha.  Here’s what I’m working on right now: This week I begin performances of Nebraskaland – one of the Metro Tours with the Omaha Theater Company.  This one explores the history of Nebraska for fourth grade audiences.  I play a slew of famous Nebraskans. In a few weeks, Pride Players…

Last chance for The Grocer’s Goblin and the Little Mermaid

It’s closing weekend for The Grocer’s Goblin and the Little Mermaid.  I’ll be sad to see this one go – it’s certainly been a very special production.  Here’s a video I made with a behind-the-scenes look at some of the puppetry in the show: For tickets, visit the Rose Theater’s website.  Hope to see you…

Holiday Time Around the World
