Jayson Elliott returns in The Christmas Voyager!
We caught up with WBT favorite, Jayson Elliott...
I grew up In a small town in northern Indiana near Norte Dame. 130 people in my high school class. Fairly rural community. We had a day where kids could drive their tractors to school. Haha. It had a small high school, a movie theatre with 2 screens, basketball hoops in every driveway, and lemonade stands.
I played a lot of sports when I was younger but then realized there were a lot more girls in a choir room than there were in a locker room. Haha.
I really fell in love with acting in High school. I fell in love with music first and the two kind of go hand in hand for me. Certainly, high school theatre and music teachers played a huge part in my career choice. They were really good about exposing us to as many forms of live performance as possible. They took us to see many different forms of art that really opened my eyes to other things.
This is my 8th WBT show. The staff makes this theatre run and I love them for that!
Some of my favorite shows and roles are BUDDY (The Big Bopper), Wizard Of Oz (The Lion), The Full Monty (Dave), all these are very much my favorites
When not on stage, I'm playing music, watching and playing sports, and spending time with friends.
I enjoy listening to music, mostly folk, rockabilly, country and classic rock. For being a musical theatre guy...I don't really listen to a ton of it. Haha
I like to Celebrate The Holidays with family and friends. Laying low and resting. I enjoy Christmas Eve gift opening with the "adults".
