Jacob’s range of recent work includes Legally Blonde: The Musical, Disney’s Newsies, The Marvelous Wonderettes, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Matilda: The Musical and many more.

Growing up in Mobile, Jacob spent much of his time onstage at Playhouse in the Park and Chickasaw Civic Theatre and with the Mobile Singing Children and the Spring Hill Singers. In college, Jacob was awarded numerous dance awards, and his keen eye for detail led to a two-year tenure as the production manager of both The Alabama Repertory Theatre and Dance Alabama. He spent the summer of 2018 as an assistant director of musical theatre at the world-renowned French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts in New York.
He now brings his many talents to The PACT Theatre, where, according to a parent, Jacob has created a safe, positive environment for performers where he encourages kindness, support and hard work.
