The Don & Catharine Bryan Cultural Series invites you to Meet Mark Twain through a direct descendent of the great American author. Ryan Clemens is a pretty fun guy. He's also an actor, director, playwright, teacher, and Mark Twain enthusiast. As Virginia Stage Company's Resident Theatre Artist, he has performed both on the main stage and in a variety of touring shows, classes and workshops
Originally from Wyoming, Ryan began his career leading a travelling Wild West show. He has performed at theatres around the nation, with his recent work including four seasons with Norfolk's Virginia Stage Company and three seasons with the Virginia Shakespeare Festival. He holds a BA in Theatre from Western Washington University and an MFA in Acting from Regent University. He is also a member of the Actor's Equity Candidate Program.
Besides Mr. Twain, some of his favorite roles include Prospero in The Tempest, Brutus in Julius Caesar, Bob Cratchit in A Christmas Carol, Mortimer in The Fantasticks, and Arnold in The Boys Next Door. The best part he has ever gotten is that of Husband to his very sweet and supportive wife Sonja.
