Et cetera: A native Albertan, Ken made his theatre debut with St. Albert Children's Theatre. With his fire for theatre ignited, his parents shipped him off to the big city next door and enrolled him in Edmonton's Victoria School for the Arts. As well as being a dedicated and passionate theatre artist, Ken has a deep love of baking. During time away from the theatre, he may be found furiously blending, decorating and munching in his kitchen. Ken is thrilled to be flying his first kite in Stratford. He sends love and gratitude to his family, friends, teachers and the TH gang.
