Sawyer King and Erik Scott- A Midsummer’s Night Dream-2013

Sawyer King ‘s first Black Swan production was Noises Off! in 2013. “I was excited and nervous with my first play but loved it,” says Sawyer.  Of the five productions he acted in,  Sawyer ‘s favorite moment was playing the lowly workman, Flute/Thisbe in  A Midsummer’s Night Dream . ” It was so fun finding the comedic moments with Erik in the play and getting the laughs.” Sawyer always added such creative ideas and moments to a character or scene”, says director, Susan Scott. “Either actors naturally have comedic timing or struggle, and Sawyer is blessed with brilliant timing,” she adds.

Sawyer is currently studying Computer Science at MHCC and loves music, video games and traveling.  “I d love to go back to Scotland and Thailand sounds pretty cool.”  If he could date any Disney princess, he hands down says Rapunzel. “because she’s so happy and fun!”
