Theatre Senior Kudos: Justin Howard ('19)

Senior lands leading roles

Senior Justin Howard

Now nearing the end of his senior year, Justin Howard has already wrapped two professional productions and lined up a third this spring. Justin had just returned from a semester abroad when the invitation came last August to join the cast of War of the Roses, at California Shakespeare Theatre. In December he won stellar reviews for his work in The People's History of Next, a world premiere at Theatre FIRST. Up next: another leading role, in The Flick at Shotgun Players. As a Business Adminstration major and a Performance and Theatre Studies minor, Justin reflected on what he's discovered working with top Bay Area professionals: "The relationship between a director and actor should not be an employer/employee relationship, but rather a partnership that fosters discovery and creativity."
