James grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and will graduate this summer with a BFA in Musical Theatre from Minnesota State University, Mankato. He is proudly making his debut at CRT and he couldn’t be happier to share this experience with such a fine group. James recently played Charles Guiteau in Assassins and performed “The Gun Song” at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Other favorite roles include The Drowsy Chaperone (Underling), 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Leaf Coneybear), Les Misérables (Combeferre), and All Shook Up (Dean Hyde). Guthrie Theater: Roman Holiday. Bloomington Civic Theatre: Phantom (Opens October 2015), Oklahoma. James is also a composer, piano player, and dialect coach. Extra special thanks and love to Mom, Adam, Jordan, Nykeigh, and all the wonderful and supportive friends and family!
