Lawrence Evans made his professional acting debut as Chief Eagle Feather in Roy Hine’s production of Annie Get Your Gun at the legendary Wagon Wheel Theatre, Warsaw, IN, in 2005. Also at the Wheel, he had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Tony Award Winner Faith Prince, Michael McCormick, Jim Walton, and Miss America Alum Kate Shindle for the 50th Anniversary Gala Concert. He also worked with Faith the following year on the opening of the local Performing Arts Center in Warsaw. In 2006 he had the opportunity to play one of the most interesting roles of his life as Stephen (Godspell) at the Oakwood Inn Playhouse. After two seasons at the Wagon Wheel, where other credits include Pirates of Penzance, A Little Night Music, and Anything Goes, he went on to study Musical Theatre at Indiana University under the direction of George Pinney, where some of his main stage credits include Phil D’Armano (Wild Party), Elisha Whitney (Anything Goes), Yertle the Turtle (Seussical The Musical) and one of the Mute Actors in Murray McGibbon’s Hamlet. Also at IU he had the pleasure of working with playwright and director Neal Utterback on his adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray and starred as himself/Dorian & other characters in the ABSOLUT International Gay Theatre Festival, Dublin, Ireland 2009. The show played to sold-out houses and won rave reviews from multiple newspapers including The Irish Times. Other favorite credits at IU include the Lecturer (Reefer Madness), Jack Nicholson (The Last Days of Heath Ledger), and Habib (Perez Hilton Saves the Universe…). In December of 2010, he was in his first ballet, guest starring as Mother Ginger in the Jacobs School of Music production of The Nutcracker. Lawrence made his film debut starring in Gesi Aho-Rulli’s reimagining of fairy tales, Rewritten (Post-Production). After the cameras turned off, he realized that film is as important an art form to him as theatre and hopes to make many more in the future. After moving to New York, he created and starred in his own cabaret, Slainte!, every week for three months. His first stage credit in NYC was playing Johnny in Eugenie Carabatsos’ short play Stalled. In May he starred in I heart NY...right?, a One Man Show he wrote and produced. The show will be submitted to New York City Fringe 2014. Current projects include a web series starting production in the fall, a monthly cabaret series "Below the Surface" with Allison Moody at the Underground Theatre, a new adaptation of Richard the Third rehearsals starting in October 2013. The immortal words of Frank Sinatra ring out, “If I can make it there I’ll make it anywhere. It’s up to you…”, and it is. It always is - up to you.
