Drew Page is excited to start his senior year with his last musical at BHS! Drew had a lengthy career in show business, including roles like Julian Marsh (42nd Street), Sam Carmichael (Mamma Mia!), and Prince Charming (Into the Woods). He is also a member of But Seriously, Folks! When not pretending to be people other than himself, Drew’s often found cocooned in a large pile of DVDs and vintage objects, writing or finding various excuses not to. He’d like to thank the crew and pit for the great work they’ve put in such a short time, his director for inspiring him to put meaning into his work, and you, for sticking with this bio long enough.
