Jared McDaris (Artistic Director)

McDaris as Hamlet, with Christopher Elst as Claudius

(www.jaredmcdaris.com) Jared first began his Unrehearsed journey in 2008, playing an obnoxious lawyer in Bard in the Barn’s production of Volpone. He became a perennial player and sometime director of Bard shows, and helped found the Unrehearsed Shakespeare Company in 2009. He recently created We Three to stage more conventional shows, but has no plans to leave Unrehearsed anytime soon. He also handles this webpage, so any good things you read about him should be taken well salted.
