at River Arts on Water Gallery (590 Water St, downtown Prairie du Sac)
Cleary graduated from Sauk Prairie High School in 2007. His favorite memories from SPMA are traveling to Europe in 2006, performing as Huck Finn in Big River, and traveling across America with the Executive Session. Show Choir ignited Cleary’s love for performance and traveling. After receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre Performance from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Cleary has enjoyed multiple opportunities and performances in New York City and Milwaukee. Cleary has been fortunate enough to become a staple in Milwaukee’s Skylight Theatre ensemble, performing in five of their musicals over the past three years. In 2013 Cleary was cast in an Off-Broadway production of “Waiting, A Song Cycle” at the prestigious Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City’s Greenwich Village. In that same summer Cleary was accepted into the Open Jar Institute, a Broadway training intensive led by Broadways finest Actors, Directors, and Producers. The following summer Cleary was asked back as a Teaching Assistant/Production Assistant. Cleary’s Open Jar network led to an incredible opportunity as a Production Assistant for the New York City Fashion Week event as a Production Assistant. He has worked this Event for 2 years and is now a Production Supervisor, working and living in New York City three months of the year. Cleary recognizes that one’s ending destination is determined by the people you meet, and things you learn while on your journey. The opportunities Cleary has experienced are thanks to the things he’s learned with SPMA in High School. He’s so very excited to return HOME and tell his story to you.
