Ron Parker

Check out this incredibly sweet INTERVIEW with my more than generous high school drama teacher, Ron Parker. He’s not only just an amazing teacher, but an exceptional theatre artist and dear, dear friend. He taught me so much about acting and theatre and even more about being a member of a community. There is not one thing I do today in life or on stage that I can’t thank him as well as his wonderful wife, Nelda, for pointing me in the right direction. I love their family like my own.

Me and Ron

APT chats with Ron Parker, the theatre director at Appleton North. He was previously the theatre director at Tremper High School in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where core company actor, and this year’s Hamlet, Matt Schwader attended high school.  In the process of starting his Summer Shakespeare program for high school students, Mr. Parker directed Matt in his first Shakespeare play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Read about how Matt’s journey to APT started at age 14.”

  1. Matt-just saw Hamlet last night and was so moved! Congratulations on such a wonderful performance. Also, Ron Parker was my high school drama teacher his first year at Appleton North. I really adored him and his family! I bet he’s so insanely proud of you.
