This is Logan’s second show with Arts in the Open. He deeply loves theatre and has a special affinity for “misunderstood” characters. He’s been acting most of his life and has tried his hand at directing more than once. He’s worked with Audacious Theatre, 5th Wall Productions, Littleton Town Hall and was a company member with the Virginia City Players for 5 summers. He hopes the show brings you laughter, joy and just a little fear.
