The Compleat Wrks of Wllm Shkspr (Abridged)

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) (2015)

Missouri Western State University Theatre

This project was so much fun to work on. Riley Bayer, Ronald Baker, and Antonio Daniels-Braziel absolutely rocked this show. We were also fortunate to have the help of two members of the Reduced Shakespeare Company come to campus to give us some pointers! A very special shout-out to Austin Tichenor and Reed Martin for taking time out of their busy schedules to share their wealth of knowledge and for inviting us to see their Christmas show just before we opened!

The Pirates of Penzance – MWSU – 2014

The Pirates of Penzance

This gallery also serves as my little homage to a tremendous colleague, Don Lillie. Don was an incredible man who enriched the lives of nearly everyone who had the great fortune of getting to know him. I count myself as lucky to have been able to join this cast as an Equity Guest Artist in the last show he directed, The Pirates of Penzance. In addition to this great honor, I am happy to say that I was able to do so along side the students in the Department of Theatre, Cinema and Dance and Department of Music at Missouri Western. This was an experience I shall not soon forget.

And, yes, those muttonchops are the real deal.

RIP Don Lillie

MWSU Theatre – J.B. – 2012

  |   Directing, Theatre   |   2 Comments


This was definitely the most rewarding theatrical experience I’ve ever had. And, I’m happy to report that our cast and crew were able to rack up a few awards and recognitions for our work at the Region V Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival this January in Lincoln, NE.  Grant Adkins took 2nd Place in the Region for his Sound Design for the show and Shaun Allison was also recognized for his work on the Lighting Design.

I’m very proud of this production and everyone involved with it.  It was not an easy piece to produce and the actors were really up to pushing themselves with this new challenge.  That was inspiring to me.  I’ll never forget it.

Arsenic & Old Lace

One of my favorite theatrical experiences ever.  This cast and crew was an absolute dream to work with and they were definitely some of the most talented and funny individuals I’ve come across in a long time.

MWSU Theatre – Phantom – 2011

Yeston & Kopit's Phantom

This was the first production I directed at Missouri Western.  It was a collaboration between the Theatre and Music Departments.  This was, to that point, the largest production I’d ever directed, but we were very proud of the outcome.  Not only was a beautiful production, it was also the first production in the modern history of Missouri Western that was a complete sellout.

MWSU Theatre-Romeo & Juliet-2011

Romeo & Juliet

I directed the first production of the 2011-2012 Season at Missouri Western and we opened it with a production of Romeo & Juliet.  I was especially proud of everyone involved.  Many of these students have never even read Shakespeare before, let alone performed his text.  They tackled this with a hunger and passion I’ve rarely seen before.

Needless to say, I chose the Civil War as the backdrop of for our Romeo & Juliet.  Celebrating the 150th Anniversary in one a city that prides itself on being the starting point of the Pony Express and it’s history from this era helped with the success of this production.
