Sam Pearson returns to Chicago Shakespeare Theater, where he appeared in King Charles III. Touring credits include Richard in Richard III and The Comedy of Errors (Montana Shakespeare in the Parks). Regional credits include: A Christmas Carol, The Home Place, The Sunshine Boys (Guthrie Theater); Of Mice and Men, Good People, The Red Box (Park Square Theatre); Courting Harry (History Theatre); and Love and Information (Frank Theatre). Television credits include: In an Instant (ABC) and Chicago PD. Sam received his BFA in acting from the University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater Actor Training Program. He attended the summer National High School Institute’s “Cherubs” program on Northwestern’s campus. About performing Shakespeare, Sam shares: “I love the thrill of forging bonds with material that has been around this long. No two people will have the same take on a character, scene or the play.” When he’s not acting, he devotes a lot of his down time to reading and to writing.
