Meet Reid Hogan who's been promoted (?) from understudy for Bliss Squiggle to playing Bliss Squiggle. Reid is great to have on your tech team, but he's sure wonderful on-stage, too!


Name: Reid Hogan

Character: Bliss Squiggle, rope operator 

Hometown: Topeka, KS

Job: Technical Director's Assistant, Kitchen Worker Director at Cedars Camps

Major: Theatrical Effects & Design, Educational Studies

Hobbies: DJing, watching movies, playing LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, eating at Qdoba or Taco Bell

Beginning of your interest in theatre: Why do you assume I'm interested? Just kidding! I went to a magnet grade school whose focus was Science & Fine Arts. So, my interests are in science and fine arts. I was in show choir, bands, orchestras, and more and so I never developed a sense of stage fright or performing in front of others because life is just performing in front of people as yourself. Then, I wanted to learn all the technical aspects of theatre my last couple of years of grade school. For our fifth grade show I designed lighting, hanged the lights, and ran the board instead of performing. It has been love ever since. I mean, everyone wants to be an actor.

A few of your favorite things: Batman, Green Lantern, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Thor, Hawkeye and Green Arrow. Not Superman, Aquaman, or The Flash. Reasons for being involved in Petalwink: A couple of years ago I decided that my life goal is to make people believe in magic again. I still believe it is out there, but others insist that it is not. The belief in magic is a key part of greatness because it can turn even the most stoic individual into a child again, and there is no better feeling than to share in another's wonder and awe. Magic, I believe, is the quickest way there, and that is what theatre is all about.

If I were a bug, I would be... Bugs Bunny.
