Justin Ivie is a proud member of Actors’ Equity. He is thrilled be a part of the SLAC Playwrights’ Lab. SLAC audiences may recognize him from his acting work as Dev in STUPID FUCKING BIRD, Jones in TOO MUCH MEMORY, and as an eight-time cast member of SATURDAY’S VOYEUR (including a turn as Heavenly Father in 2016.) Justin has also acted like he knows how to Stage Manage for SLAC (STREETLIGHT WOODPECKER, WINTER, HAND TO GOD), and directed SLAC’s readings of GRANT & TWAIN AND BANG-BANG (PAUSE) BANG. His many stage credits include appearances with Pioneer Theatre Company, Utah Musical Theatre, Egyptian Theatre Company, Old Lyric Repertory Theatre and others - both locally and in Chicago. As a director, he has staged DRIVING MISS DAISY, THE SENIOR THEATRE PROJECT and SENIOR STAGES for Walk-Ons, Inc. He has also directed Arthur Miller’s THE PRICE for The OtherSide Players and JACOB MARLEY'S CHRISTMAS CAROL for OurSpace Theatre Company. A Weber State alumnus, Justin earned his MFA at Northern Illinois University. He has taught theatre and communications at LDS Business College, NIU, Triton College, and Weber State. Justin also designs scenery, props and theatrical masks, writes an occasional play, and sometimes even plays his banjo (when he's pretty sure no one is listening).
