Ryan originally discovered his love for theatre at the age of 7 right here on Rivertown’s stage. A couple of decades or so later, Ryan returned to where it all started with last season’s production of 9 to 5 where he played “Joe”. His current 9 to 5 performance is at Brother Martin High School, his alma mater, where he proudly plays the role of “teacher” and “theatre director”. Locally, he has directed numerous productions for JPAS’s youth program, most recently Schoolhouse Rock Jr. and The Little Mermaid Jr. He also performs annually with St. Luke’s Wing and a Prayer Productions—favorite productions include Shrek (Lord Farquuad) and All Shook Up (Dennis). His sincerest thanks go out to Gary, the cast, and the crew for making this an experience one cannoli hope for and to his parents and Allee for their constant, constant encouragement.
