Ethan Carlson

Ethan started performing as a competitive gymnast in Topeka, Kansas, where he received his early education at Cair Paravel Latin School — which was a Chronicles of Narnia-themedelementary and high school (not kidding) (it was amazing). During this time he found a simultaneous love of musical theatre and The Lord of the Rings. After a Google search revealed he could not actually become a Hobbit he decided to attend Interlochen Arts Academy for musical theatre, followed by Pace University, where he received his BFA (’16). Favorite credits thus far include Lysistrata Jones (Xander), Dog Opera (Jackie), West Side Story (Baby John), High School Musical (Ryan), as well as readings of Darling and Rope, both by Ryan Scott Oliver. He’s also performed in concerts presented and featuring work by Adam Guettel and Sam Willmott, as well as Ryan Scott Oliver’s opening American Songbook at Lincoln Center. While some people prefer the saying “This too shall pass,” Ethan prefers “Thou SHALL NOT PASS.”
