Austin is the former Technical Director for The Ziegfeld Theater in Ogden, and since stepping down he’s primarily been involved in operating and designing lights and sound up and down the Wasatch Front. Austin saw ‘The Vagina Monologues’ years ago and enjoyed the format very much, and after learning about MY FIRST TIME he was thrilled to audition, and ecstatic to be cast in a similar style show that he would be able to be a part of. He would like to thank the Universe for giving him this opportunity to learn more about society and grow as a human being, and we truly hope you’ll come learn with him and us as at MY FIRST TIME.
