Drew is so excited to be making his debut this summer with Crane River Theater! He was born and raised in small town, Alabama where he attended Samford University obtaining degrees in Theatre and Journalism & Mass Communications. Upon graduating in 2021, Drew moved to Atlanta, GA where he is currently based until the end of this year when he will be making the big move to New York City! This summer, you can catch him portraying Milton in Words, Words, Words, Squidward in The Spongebob Musical, Lord Farquaad in Shrek the Musical, and as a performer in the cabaret. Drew has also had the opportunity to perform all over the country in roles like Jesus in Godspell (Milton Theatre), Pippin in Pippin (Regional Theatre of the Palouse), the Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz (The Legacy Theatre), and many more! Drew wants to take a moment to thank his parents for always supporting his theatrical pursuits, his Aunt Robin, his two best friends Nic and Daylan, his mentors: Chelsea Nicholson, Kristin Kenning, Lindsay Troha and Michael Karl, and finally his Heavenly Father for giving him these gifts and providing venues to share them in.
