“Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about.”
Slater is from a small Wyoming village called Wheatland. He comes from a long line of farmers. He grew up painfully shy but joined theatre his freshman year of high school after some coercing by some upper-classmen. He NEVER LOOKED BACK, BABY.
Slater received his BA in Musical Theatre from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK, after which he immediately was accepted to his dream school, Mason Gross School of the Arts.
Slater has his toes dipped in many genres of theatre, including Shakespeare, TYA (Theatre for Young Audiences), Contemporary, and Musical Theatre. He has spent the last 7 summers at various regional theatres in the U.S., doing summerstock musicals.
Some of his favorite past credits include: Willy in Willy Wonka, Mercutio in Romeo & Juliet, Algernon in The Importance of Being Earnest, Leontes in The Winter’s Tale, and Lucas in The Addams Family.
He is just a little country boy who can’t wait to set up camp in the big citay.
