Artist of the Month
We are proud to celebrate the work Nick does for NTPA. Most recently he brought “to life” FIDDLER ON THE ROOF in Fairview. This month his “Guys and Dolls, Jr” takes over the Rodenbaugh Theatre at Willow Bend. In addition to all his great shows, Nick has been instrumental in the growth of the Starcatchers Theatre, where his recent staging of JUNGLE BOOK sold out its performances.
Nick grew up in the towns of Bowie, TX and Carlsbad, NM. Even as a child, Nick was always interested in drama. He recalls the very first musical he created with stuffed animals and a tape recorder when he was in the 4th Grade! Nick graduated from the University of North Texas earning a B.A. in Theatre Performance and Education. His advanced training includes Song Interpretation with Tony Award-Winning Actress Betty Buckley, Meisner Acting Technique with Terry Martin and Improv and Sketch Comedy at The Second City Training Center.
Mike Mazur was the music director for Nick’s recent production of ANYTHING GOES and commented: “Nick’s passion for musical theatre shows in everything he does. He found a way to make a classic musical relatable AND fun for our students…and for me!”
Congrats, Nick, we look forward to enjoying all your future shows!
