Micah is a junior this year and one of the kindest and most positive people we have in the theatre department. He is friends with everyone and is always looking to make new ones. Micah's infectious humor brings a smile to many especially his GUFFAWs anytime. Micah recently brought the house down with his sultry portrayal of Simeon in Those Canaan Days in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Micah is cast as Senor O'Brien in Freaky Friday and Hans in Frozen Jr. in PHS' upcoming productions. It's no wonder his spirit animal is a squirrel.
