Randall Eames

Randall Eames comes to SDSU from Salt Lake City, Utah, where he has been an active participant in the theatre community. He spent the last 15 years acting, directing and coaching in theatre and most recently, served as the Communication Director at the Salt Lake Acting Company. Eames received his BA in acting and directing from Weber State University but was never satisfied with that. “I always regretted not getting my undergraduate degree in musical theatre,” he said. “So I decided I wanted to get my Master’s in musical theatre.” Eames loves the concept of musical theatre and the freedom it can bring to both the actors and audience. “I love how musical theatre can take us away from reality,” says Eames. In the future, Eames’ goals include teaching at a university while still being able to maintain a professional career of acting and directing. In addition, Eames also hopes to become the artistic director of a theatre company. “This is what I do all the time so it’s not really work being here, I’m doing what I want to do.”
