FOURTH WALL DOWN
WHO WE ARE
Nick Henderson - Grand Fromage - Executive Producer - Actor - Cat Herder - Momentmonger
Working throughout the country as a professional actor from the age of 18, Nick has had the good fortune of creating art, while learning from and alongside, some of the best in the industry. With a focus on classical text, musicals, and physical/combat elements, Nick has been exposed to a broad range of influences and styles. He also believes a healthy sense of play and whimsy is a vital component to the theatric process. Performing in unconventional settings, while still giving true attention to the craft, has always had a pull for him as an actor, and he's thrilled to now be devising new and exciting ways to share stories, poetry, ideas, and exceptional art with the world. 'Bard in the Bar', 'Drunk Shakespeare', and 'The Shakespeare Exchange' (among others) planted a seed in his mind to create a company circling around theatric pubcrawls and similar "in the round, with rounds" productions. Having sat on the back burner long enough, he believes the creative team that has formed around that idea is just the right group to make it a reality, and a success. He is a proud member of Actor's Equity Association, the national union for actors and stage managers. Cheers!
