Cast Profile: Seth Patterson

No performance of “The Stephen Foster Story” is possible without a masterful portrayal of the titular Stephen Foster, and actor Seth Patterson has risen to the occasion for this season of the show. Making his debut at the J. Dan Talbott Amphitheatre, Patterson is also performing in the ensemble of “The Little Mermaid” through the Stephen Foster Drama Association.

Patterson holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Central Michigan University and is a grateful member of Dr. Eric Tucker’s voice studio. Some of his previous theater production credits include “Jersey Boys” and “Fiddler on the Roof” with the Fireside Dinner Theatre and “Cabaret” with the Glow Lyric Theatre.
