Colton’s parents had him audition for his first play when he was 7 years old, thinking it would be another thing that wouldn’t last. Well, 20+ years and 25 shows later, the jokes on them. Colton’s performing credits include Bert in Mary Poppins, Enjolras in Les Miserables, Charlie Brown in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and many others. Recently, he’s spent more time behind the scenes directing various Night on Broadway productions for PCT and is loving it. He loves theater and the joy it brings to others. His most favorite past-time is playing cars, making cookies, snuggling, and watching endless Disney movies with his kids, Heber and Elsie. He is extra excited to share the stage again with his beautiful wife, Avonlea.
Sarah is thrilled to be a part of the PCT family! Sarah is a nurse by day and a music loving nerd by night. She is ecstatic to be performing and directing for the second time this year. She can’t wait to share what the amazing cast has put together during this weird time in life. It is inspiring, beautiful and will leave your heart full.
