ACTOR  SINGER    DANCER  GOOF

Ryan

Ryan Gregory Thurman stuns as Sebastian with fabulous vocals and characterization; he’s everything you’re hoping he will be and his performance of “Under the Sea” will not disappoint.

I was born and raised in Cleveland, OH!

My family has always been insanely supportive of anything I've wanted to do.  I started my adventures off young; 5 years old to be exact, when I started Tae Kwon Do. Through the next decade or so, I earned my 2nd Degree Black Belt (still one of my favorite accomplishments!). I later found an interest in more sports: Hockey, Lacrosse, and Diving. 

My love for music has ALWAYS been huge. From playing the Viola in orchestra, to playing Clarinet and Saxophone in Concert, Jazz and Marching Bands. Eventually I decided to push it further and joined an Acapella choir, an Acapella men's group, and show choir. I discovered the love for singing that led me to do my first big musical RAGTIME, playing Coalhouse Walker Jr. From then on, it was set!

I finished up high school and left Shaker Heights for "Steel Town;" PITTSBURGH. I attended Point Park University's Conservatory of Performing Arts and in 2014, graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Musical Theatre. Shortly thereafter, I packed up my things, and moved here, to my new home, New York City! 

Now,

This Is A Story All About How...

 
 

RECENT & UP NEXT

           Spring/Summer/Fall 2020

      CREATIVE COVID

 

 

This year has been a helluva year for everyone. Lots of hardship, lots of new experiences for better & for worse. I am ever so grateful to have filled my time learning new things, creating new art, and just BREATHING. Brilliant creative opportunities I've been blessed with during quarantine: "FEUILLY" in Les Mis in Quaran-Stream (Creative Quarantine), "ROBIN" in SLAM! (Capital Rep's Virtual NextAct), "DOUG" in More Than a Package (Be Bold Productions - SPF 2020),"CLY" in The Designer (Rochester Fringe), Another Kind of Cancer (Equality Productions - BLACK LIVES MATTER Monologues), as well as a Masquerade: Parody Music Video, & a very heartfelt Ragtime Virtual Medley.

Ryan was pumped to hop into the role of SEBASTIAN in Disney's The Little Mermaid at Babylon Villiage's Argyle Theatre in Long Island. The show was directed & choreographed by

Tara Jeanne Vallee. Rehearsals started right before the new year, ahead of a full run, including 5 previews, from January 16 - February 23, 2020! Check out a quick excerpt from a wonderful review by

MY BEST REVIEW SO FAR:

 

"You're the kid who didn't play the clarinet but played notes the first lesson, and became 1st chair. You're the kid who never played lacrosse, went to camp and then made the team. You're the kid who wanted to sing and got in Acapella choir, show choir, and men's ensemble. You're the kid who couldn't ice skate without his ankles hurting and who didn't know how to skate fast or backward until moments before tryouts and made the team. You're THAT kid. The one with the dance scholarship, the college scholarship, and a big dream. Just sayin'. My kid, I love you bunches and bunches."
