Shade is ecstatic to have the chance to work with the Crane River Theater Company. He has previously been seen on the stages of both Kearney High and Kearney Community Theatre. Shade has played a wide array of characters, from the Cat in the Hat in Seussical the Musical to escaped convict Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, and is excited to play yet another fun role. After this crazy summer Shade plans to attend the Johnny Carson School of Theater and Film at UNL and major in Theater Performance.
