BRUCE ROACH 

My work as an actor, director and educator has taken me across the U.S. and abroad. After graduating from the Conservatory, I did another season of acting in the Asolo company. My next career turn took me to teaching, including designing and implementing a summer training program in Lacoste, France for the Savannah College of Art and Design. I then returned to my native Midwest (I really like it there), where I found steady work directing and acting in Kansas City, MO. I’ve had great opportunities to direct some fine actors in that professional community, as well as continuing my life as an actor with the top companies there. Significantly, I’ve gotten to put my Asolo training into my passion, getting to play some great Shakespearean roles with the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival, including, Richard III, Iago, and Leontes, plus a lot more. And then sometimes, I’ve even returned to my roots to do a big musical! For the last five years, I’ve been lucky enough to be on the faculty of the Guthrie Theater/University of Minnesota Actor Training Program. I’m the first year teacher, which I love. Every day, I work with some of the most gifted young talents in the country. And along the way, I got married to a great guy.
