Who Am I?

Hi, my name is Ben and I’m originally from Las Vegas, Nevada! I hold a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from Southern Utah University in Musical Theatre performance. I’m currently performing as Benjamin in Joseph in the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Utah Shakespeare Festival.

In addition to Utah Shakes, I’ve had the great pleasure to work at the Neil Simon Festival in Cedar City, UT, this past summer, playing in Biloxi Blues and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. My most recent educational endeavors have been working with dir. Tony Clements on Fun Home at SUU, and currently I am playing Jamie Wellerstein in The Last Five Years at Second Studio on SUU campus.

I’m also an aspiring writer for musical theatre. My works have included small 10 minute musicals performed at play festivals to a full length work, Pizza Boy; a new musical, extra cheese, which we independently work shopped in Cedar City to great success. Check out a video here!
