Jacob Eeg

Jacob Eeg (RHYS) is a sophomore Acting and Directing major at Baldwin Wallace University. He graduated from General Mclane High School in Erie, PA. While in high school, he was involved in Broadway Dinner for four years, Vocal Jazz ensemble for three years, Voice Connections for two years, Acting and Set Design, and he was involved in the musicals at his school from his sophomore year to his senior year. At Baldwin Wallace University, Jacob got the honor to feel the college theatre life for the first time understudying Roy Cohn in Angels in America pt. 2: Perestroika. Directed by Scott Plate. Later on that year he enjoyed participating in Baldwin Wallace’s 10 Minute Play Festival in a show called: I’m Gonna Phone This One In, directed by his good friend and mentor, Peter Ribar. The following fall semester of his sophomore year he had the honor to work again, under Scott Plate in the show Our Town by Thornton Wilder, playing as George Gibbs. He is very excited to be participating in his first show outside of education in this production and is excited for the opportunity to work at Dobama Theatre with his fellow cast and under his director, Nathan Motta. Theatre has always been a huge part of his life growing up, allowing him to not just be a weird, funny guy in the halls, but on stage as well. He enjoys taking on a new character and delving into what makes that character so unique. He also enjoys food and sleep.
