AS A DIRECTOR...

Sean started producing his own work at age 13 on a church stage in his hometown. Since then, Sean has gone on to direct theatre in anywhere from black boxes, double wide trailers, classrooms, Wall Street, people’s kitchens and other site specific and environmental locations. His work can be mostly classified as experimental with an emphasis in genre work: horror/sci fi, site specificity, solo performance, stories based on real life events and musicals: with varying styles and room for exploration. Sean also has experience stage managing and costume design In Spring 2015, he had an article written about him based on his work with Macabre Theatre Ensemble in The Ithacan. He's also had articles written about him in Bear World Magazine and Theatre In The Now. Here's some more info!
