Joshua’s passion for singing and performing was evident at a very young age, when he took center stage in his daycare’s spring and winter concerts. At the age of 5, he asked to try theater camp and absolutely loved his experience at the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre. This is where his love affair with musical theater really began. Over the next few years, Joshua was dedicated to the local KidStage Theater as well as the Northbrook Park District Junior and Community Theater, taking on roles such as Lion in the “Wizard of Oz”, Geppetto in “My Son Pinocchio”, Buddy in “Elf” and Michael Banks in “Mary Poppins”. Joshua is thrilled about his next role as the Little Boy in “Ragtime” in The Dolphin Show at Northwestern University, starting in Jan 2018.
Joshua is dedicated to learning and growing as a performer, training at the Actors Training Center, private vocal coaching and attending summer workshops. He takes every role seriously, meticulously learning about each role he’s portraying by watching other performances, reading as much as possible and getting into the mindset of each character. His says that his most coveted future role is that of Tevye from “Fiddler on the Roof” and Genie from “Aladdin”.
Joshua loves to sing in his school choir, is an accomplished ballroom dancer, having trained for 7 years, an avid tennis player, and is a valued member of his school’s math team. His wicked sense of humor and kind personality make him easily relatable to both kids and adults alike.
Joshua is grateful to be a part of the Gray Talent Group and is excited about his future roles!
