Will Jewett is a senior in the Musical Theatre Program at Penn State University. He is originally from Pittsburg, Kansas. Yes, you read that right -- there is no "h" on the end of his Pittsburg! Throughout middle school and high school he grew a love for dance and theatre and was dancing competitively/choreographing professionally.
Shortly after graduating from high school, Will traveled the world and performed with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. As well as dancing in three mainstage shows on the ship, he also choreographed multiple special events and shows and even starred in a Dinner Theater Murder Mystery.
Now studying musical theatre, he finds summer work performing at highly reputable regional theaters such as Music Theatre Wichita where he played Larry in A Chorus Line. His other favorite Music Theatre Wichita credits include Pippin (Dir/Ch. Al Blackstone), Chicago (Dir/Ch. Brian Marcum) and An American In Paris (Dir./Ch Jeffry Denman). He most recently choreographed and starred in the “POP” campaign for Sheetz. Will is currently working on Nostalgia Night, a new musical written by Sofya Levintsky-Weitz with music by Matthew McCollum under the direction of John Simpkins. In the upcoming premiere reading of the piece, Will is originating the role of Bryce.
In addition to being a theatre artist, Will is very passionate about interior design, yoga, and fashion.
