James is the Artistic Director of Newnan Shakespeare in the Park. As a native to Newnan, James is incredibly grateful to be home
and to bring this play to you! James holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from Western Carolina University. For the past three years,
he has had the great privilege of working as an actor at the Barter Theatre, the State Theatre of Virginia. James has just
finished up a nine month tour of two musicals for Barter and the Manhattan-based theatre company, Theatreworks USA. Favorite
past credits include Jonas in The Giver, Haemon in Antigone, and Joe Gargery/Uncle Pumblechook/Bentley Drummle in Great
Expectations. James would like to thank everyone who helped make this production possible, and of course RJA for the constant
support and inspiration. He hopes you enjoy the show!
