This is Samuel's first season with APT and he is very excited to be here! Samuel graduated this past spring from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with an MFA in Acting. Favorite roles at U of I include playing opposite fellow company member Chris Sheard in True West, switching roles each night. Samuel has spent the past two summers touring for Montana Shakespeare in the Parks in productions of Much Ado About Nothing (Benedick), The Merchant of Venice (Shylock), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Demetrius/Snout) and Julius Caesar (Cinna/Pindarus). He completed his undergrad from Southern Oregon University.
