Joshua Whitson has the right blend of boyish charm and hero quality as he flies and flips on the elaborate flying system.

Hello!

 

Thanks for taking the time to look at my website. So, this is the part where I tell you about how I grew up in Michigan surrounded by miles of farm land and used to fight dragons in my backyard. I have always had a wild imagination. That's part of the reason why I love swimming so much: it's the closest thing we have to flying! This is also the reason why I, following the instructions of a book my mom listened to on tape, pretended to have superpowers every day for almost two years (more specifically- the power to modulate molecular speed).

 

Being an actor, I get to morph into another human, to see the world through their eyes. I used to be a shy, nerdy kid who sat in the back of the class reading a book. Until one very important day in fourth grade my teacher asked me to be in the school production: How the West Was Dun: Sunny Side Up and Fried. Not only that, but I would be able to play the villain. Me? The nerdy, skinny kid was going to play a villain? Awesome! Ever since that day, I realized that I could be anything that I wanted to be.

 

I cannot express how important theatre is. I know from experience how much it changed my life. So, everytime I leave the stage, I hope that maybe there was a kid in that audience who saw that fighting dragons in your backyard isn't weird or nerdy, it's preparing you to be the hero that you always dreamed you would be.
