My name is Harrison Miller. I have a Bachelors of Arts in the Humanities and am pursuing a Master's degree in Theatre. In my time at Bob Jones University I have acted in production ranging from classic plays like King Lear and Antigone to great American works such as All My Sons and The Trip to Bountiful! I have also acted in several new works. In addition to acting, I have done dramaturgical research for several productions and stage-managed a play festival.
As I finish my degree I will be Directing Shiloh Rules. I will also be the Stage Manager for a new work entitled Just Give Me A Blue Moon written by Beth Adkins.
