CJ made his debut for SDMT as Mike in Freaky Friday and was cast as Mark Cohen in Rent which was postponed due to COVID. He is so excited to be back on stage performing and especially at SDMT. CJ has been performing for the last 8 years in many youth theatre shows. Some of his favorites: Javert in Les Misérables, Quasimodo in Hunchback of Notre Dame, Jack Kelly in Newsies, Her Sonnenstitch in Spring Awakening and Angus Tuck in Tuck Everlasting. He is currently preparing for his upcoming auditions to many BFA Musical Theatre Programs. Special thanks to Jill and the SDMT Team for the honor of performing in the Rising Stars Event. Big love to my family, the boys who have kept me sane during this time and all my coaches, teachers and directors for their constant encouragement and support.
