Jared Walker, Master of Ceremonies

Jared Walker, Master of Ceremonies: Walker’s first professional engagement with the CAC was as Ringmaster for the Summer Circus Spectacular in 2018; shortly afterwards, he was hired as the creative director for the CAC and its Sailor Circus Academy. The Florida native got bitten by the theater bug in third grade and later expanded to show choir, marching band and drama club. He graduated with a BFA in Music and Theatre from Shenandoah College & Conservatory and made a career as an Equity actor while moonlighting as a director, choreographer and costume designer. After 9/11, he moved back to the east coast of Florida to be near his aging parents, then moving to Sarasota in 2004 to perform at the Golden Apple Dinner Theatre. He served as the director and manager for the Players Theatre in Sarasota for 10 years prior to coming to the CAC.
