CARSON ELROD/Featured Performer
This Sunday at Judson Memorial Church we hold our 2nd Annual Winter Solstice Celebration. And, we have a beautiful group of artists and performers taking part. For the reader portion of our program, we have the dynamic, charming and talented Carson Elrod, who’s been a member of our community for some time now. Carson’s a celebrated actor and a beautiful guy and I’m always delighted to have him in our midst and I’m thrilled he’s going to read a piece by Carl Sagan in honor of the theme of SPACE. That’s Sunday, December 18th at 6:30pm at Judson Memorial Church.
Carson Elrod was born in Kansas. He went to school at Potwin Elementary, Robinson Middle School, Topeka High School, University of Kansas and NYU’s Graduate Acting Program.
He was called to acting in college when, in the midst of taking on a truly enormous amount of activities (DJ, columnist, classes, etc.) I auditioned for Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins. The magnanimous Ron Willis cast me in the play and from the moment he first felt the supernatural glow of the white spotlight, that was it. I was in.I believe that acting in film, television, and theatre is the most visceral and relatable form of storytelling the planet has. His many titles include Talented Actor, Improvisor, Teacher,Coach, Director, and Writer.
