Jacob Simon is so excited to be performing with this amazing group of storytellers! Jacob, who is just finishing up his sophomore year at Deerfield High School, can usually be found on the musical theatre stage as a member of Another Door Theatre Project where he studies acting, voice, and dance. Favorite past roles include Emcee (Cabaret), Peter (bare: A Pop Opera), Tulsa (GYPSY), and Moritz (Spring Awakening). This summer, Jacob will be attending musical theatre training programs at The Performing Arts Project and The University of Michigan.
Three things you may not know about Jacob...
1) Following an unfortunate incident in his 8th grade Social Studies class, Jacob is now extra careful to make sure his headphones are plugged into his computer before he listens to Liza Minnelli's albums at full volume.
2) After taking multiple Buzzfeed Quizzes to tell him which S&C character he is and getting Miranda on every single one of them, Jacob still tells people he is a Carrie.
3) Although Jacob has been performing in musicals and plays his entire life, this show will be his first time performing an original piece. He is both excited and terrified.
