Joshua Begelman plays John Bechdel in FUN HOME. Josh began his professional acting career at the age of eight in community theater productions as Rusty Charlie in Guys and Dolls , Grimsby in The Little Mermaid, and Agwe in Once on This Island. Television appearances include Nikolai on CBS’ Madam Secretary and two skits on Saturday Night Live with Will Ferrell and John Mulaney. This past fall, Joshua participated in a table read of a new play by Iris Rainer Dart and directed by Lonny Price. He has modeled for the Fall 2018 Tommy Hilfiger boys collection. Joshua loves playing piano, especially pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, and riding his 21 speed mountain bike. He is a rising 5th grader at Stone Academy and is a member of the Jump Start school television program where he is the correspondent for World News every Thursday morning.
