Ryan was born in New Jersey and has lived in Knoxville for the past five years. He is excited to return to CBT’s production of A Christmas Carol for a third time. Ryan is a sophomore at Christian Academy of Knoxville where he runs cross country and is a member of the Spirit of Praise Ensemble. He also likes to sail and play the clarinet. He has performed at the Knoxville Children’s Theatre where some of his favorite roles include Jonas in The Giver and Sir Kay in Knights of Camelot-Quest for the Grail. He has also performed at Oak Ridge Playhouse as Sasha/Bottle Dancer in Fiddler on the Roof. He wishes to first thank God for His many blessings, his family and friends for their love and support, as well as CBT for giving him this opportunity. Merry Christmas!
