About the Artist

IMG_0322-1_edited.jpg

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.


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.

Whether on the stage, on the screen, in the recording studio, or on a creative team, Steven approaches his work with everything he’s got in multiple senses of the term. Steven puts in one hundred percent effort while bringing one hundred percent of his unique self to whatever endeavor he is drawn to. Uniqueness and individuality are some of the most important aspects of anything he does.


Steven approaches every project he works on with an open mind and a desire to find his own way into the creative process. He is always sure to ask where his own interests fit in and what creative journey feels the most crucial to who he is. Through doing this, he always finds a fresh approach to creation that ensures his well never runs dry.

Steven 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.

Let it come from you.
Then it will be new.
Give us more to see..."
