Cast & Creative

Austin_ArcherAustin Archer marks this as his first 'official' summer as part of the cast of SATURDAY’S VOYEUR, last year he joined the sold out show for it's week long extension run as Tonto and only partially lost his VOYEUR Virginity as they say. Other SLAC credits include Shye in the NPSS reading of TRENCHCOAT IN COMMON and Haemon in TOO MUCH MEMORY. He is currently pursuing a degree in acting/directing from Weber State University where some of his favorite roles included: Millett in FUDDY MEERS, Slim in COWBOY MOUTH, Lee Harvey Oswald in ASSASSINS, and Aaron Kriefels in THE LARAMIE PROJECT. He recently won a Best of Festival award at the Kennedy Center American College Theater festival for his choreography in Weber State's production of UNDER CONSTRUCTION. When Austin isn't fueling his acting habit, he's either playing music with one of his two bands (another dangerous addiction), or tearing your tickets here at SLAC as part of the house management team. Now sit back, drink up, and enjoy the show!
