About the Artist
Steven Sawan is an actor, singer, teacher, and recording artist who grew up in a little town outside of Boston. His love for performance first flourished when he was cast in a children's version of Macbeth as soldier number 6 (you read that right). Through a combination of hard work, dedication, and support from those around him, he has been able to cherish and nurture this love for theatre for the past twelve years, and has grown to discover many new artistic outlets beyond the stage. As an artist, Steven seeks to make art that draws attention to problems in the world around us, while serving as a distraction to the very problems we face on our own. As a co-worker, Steven seeks to create an environment that nourishes community while ensuring that everyone feels cared for, welcomed, and safe.
Steven is a former Adjunct Professor of Theatre at Providence College, where he taught Intro to Acting and Intro to Theatre, Dance, and Film. He graduated magna cum laude from the honors program at Providence College with a B.A. in Theater Arts, concentrating in Musical Theater, and completed his M.F.A. in Musical Theater at the Boston Conservatory at Berklee.
Some all-time favorite theatre credits include Shakespeare in Something Rotten!, Pierre in Daughters with Daggers, a Phantom in The Rocky Horror Show, the Tinman in The Wizard of Oz, and Eddie Birdlace in Dogfight.
