Simon Parker (he/they) hails from the tiny town of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. He first developed a love for theatre at 10 years old, when he played Mouse #3 in Cinderella. While not the most inspiring role, it was enough to send him down a path of several community theatre productions, attending Interlochen Arts Camp, and now, Rutgers University. Favorite Rutgers credits include: Antipholus of Ephesus in Comedy of Errors, Levi Suydam in Damocles, and Porter in Macbeth. Simon is also an avid writer, director, and visual artist. His first play premiered at the Youth Playwright’s Festival at Thingamajig Theatre Co., where he learned the value and beauty of developing new works. When he’s not acting, he loves to play with his cat, collect dinosaur figurines, and dream of a world where neurodivergent and queer artists are treated with respect.
