As a young child, Christopher Sieber would create and perform his own shows in front of a window in his living room. The grass and unsuspecting passerby was his audience. Fast forward several yeras and he’s taken the plunge, moving to New York City. He eventually lands his Broadway debut in 2004 staring as Gaston in Beauty and the Beast. He then joins other iconic casts, such as Chicago, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Into the Woods before his legendary stint as Sir Dennis Galahad in Monty Python’s Spamalot (a role which he had 4 days’ notice to prepare for!). After roles in Shrek The Musical, La Cage aux Folles, Matilda the Musical, and Pippin, he now finds himself as the arrogant, self-centered character of Trent Oliver in The Prom, which has been nominated for 7 2019 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
Far from the string of arrogant characters, his real-life personality is humble, kind, and loving. Listen in to hear more.
