Bleu Copas is finally making his CBT stage debut after playing hard in many other performance spaces. Selected highlights include Ragtime and Children of Eden at Cape Fear Regional Theatre, multiple musicals at Oak Ridge Playhouse, WordPlayers, Maryville College and Encore Theatrical Company. Bleu’s passion for social advocacy fuels his work with the LGBTQ-focused Appalachian Equality Chorus, his work with military Veterans daily and creating safe community for the voiceless. In the spirit of Kinky Boots, “…if your glitter rusts, let me raise you up…JUST BE!” Much gratitude to Ricky, his AEC fam, and anyone else who believed in him.
