Actor Spotlight: JACK

This week's featured actor has been with us since The Wizard of Oz in 2012. He loves dancing with his friends, and also hosting parties at his home. He is a great reader, a soft-spoken, but very serious actor who admires Hugh Jackman and Bill Murray for their skills. AND, not he's also celebrating a big birthday this week! Say hello and happy 18th to our friend Jack!

Meet JACK!

I am Jack Butler and I am turning 18! Twelfth Night will be my 5th stage play with ABLE. You may have seen me in some of my favorite roles: The Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz, Grumio in Kiss Me Kate, and Click in The Curse of the Tempest Jewel. I love coming to rehearsals every week to see my friends and enjoy all of our warm up exercises and dance party – especially if it’s to my favorite song “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” by The Four Seasons. I love acting and look up to Hugh Jackman and Bill Murray and Marty McFly.

Three words to describe me are: cute, nice, and weird. I know a lot about pop culture and like hosting parties for my friends and castmates and playing hockey. Someday, I want to be president. 

ABLE is the one activity I don’t have to push Jack to get ready for. He is happy to go and happy when he comes out. He loves being with his peers, and by getting to know cool, fun, talented peers with Down syndrome, it has made him proud to have Down syndrome.
