Name: Nick Pearce
Hometown: Iowa City, Iowa
Major: Theatre and Secondary Education
Age that you started theatre: 9, I played a camel in a 4th grade show.
Dream Role and Why: I've always wanted to be Nicely Nicely Johnson in Guys and Dolls. This is because when I first saw the movie, he reminded me of a gangster Santa Claus.
Productions I've been involved in: Guys and Dolls, It's a Wonderful Life, Legally Blonde, and Beauty and the Beast. Mostly shows in Iowa City theatres.
Latest Project: I'm playing Merriman in The Importance Of Being Ernest. It should be great!
Why SAU? I immediately liked the environment and people in the theatre department, and the small school atmosphere seemed like the best place for me.
Any job in the world: The director of a high school drama department.
Who inspires me the most: Leonardo DiCaprio, because he's deserved four Oscars, and gotten none. But even after all that, he keeps his head up and makes more brilliant movies.
Where do you see yourself in five years: Probably on the way to earning my master's degree, and finishing up more student teaching. Hopefully, in another show!
