He started in high school, from there he stared in a few Greenville tech shows, and then stared as Romeo in a production of Romeo and Juliet for the Upstate Shakespeare Festival. He went on to star as Ariel in the Tempest, Anthony Marston in And Then There Were None, and now Rick in The Men From The Boys. He is grateful for the opportunity to be apart of a great project. 

Director John Fagan returns to rein in this rowdy, lovable cast, as does stage manager Katherine Rausch (narrator/reader) and producer Sandy Staggs as producer/technical director.

Original cast members Holt McCarley (Larry, who is dead!) and Zachary Urban (Cowboy) return as new characters Jason (a young gay activist) and Scott (Michael’s pretty boy-toy) respectively.

And joining our testosterone-and bitchy barb-fueled cast is Adam Jones in his Proud Mary Theatre Company debut as the young Asian nurse Rick. Jones may be the new boy on the block but he earned rave reviews as Romeo in last summer’s Upstate Shakespeare Festival production in Falls Park on the Reedy in Greenville.
