Caleb Roman is a first year student from a small town in central New York called Genoa, about 30 minutes outside of Ithaca, NY. He is a dual major here in Theatre and Music.

What kinds of roles did you play in high school? 

In high school, I mostly worked with my school drama dept. and local theatre companies in family friendly shows like Fiddler on the Roof, The Wizard of Oz, Annie, and Seussical. I was usually cast in principal or supporting roles. In my high school drama dept., not many boys were interested in getting on stage which may have helped my casting a little.


What attracted you to Saint Michael's College?  

I applied/auditioned at six schools, each for different programs spanning from acting to vocal performance.
