Keaton Wilkerson is a Bay Area native who just graduated from the University of California, Irvine where he received a BA in Drama with an emphasis in musical theatre. His passion for the arts was sparked in the first grade with a school production of the Pied Piper; he then went on performing in every school show possible all the way through high school. In college, along with performing, he found a passion for teaching and inspiring youth to cultivate the artists within themselves. He then began directing children’s theatre at his old elementary school, working various summer theatre camps, and is a very proud member of Fantasy Forum Actors Ensemble! Needless to say, he is thrilled to be continuing his passion for arts youth education through teaching voice, piano, and acting with the Performing Arts Studio at The Ballet School Performing Arts. Some of his past rolls include: Franklin Shepard (Merrily we Roll Along), Mrs. Bumbrake (Peter and the Star Catcher), Hertz (Rock of Ages), Farm Boy (Gypsy), Ghost of Christmas Future (A Christmas Carol) Eddie (Mamma Mia), Chip (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), and Jimmy (Music Man).
