Ben began his theatrical work in the woods with his starring role in “Into the Woods.” It would seem mildly appropriate that his love of the outdoors presented him an excellent opportunity for further character work, focusing in outdoorsmen, sage-type character roles.

He, as many others in the cast are pursuing PhD’s is combining his camping experience with his academic life and is currently starting in “Don’t Bother Me, I Can’t C.O.P.E.”
