Brandon Saunders

Born and raised on the West Coast, Brandon has called Chicago home since the summer of 2008. He has been seen performing on stage at the Michigan Shakespeare Festival, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, NexStage Theater, and the Rubicon Theater. He has been seen locally at Next Theater, A Red Orchid Theater, Greenhouse Theater Center and the One Minute Play Festival at Victory Gardens Theater. But he has been seen more often as a part of some incredible shows here at Strawdog Theater. His Strawdog credits include The Petrified Forest in 2012 and Big Love in 2013. Since 2010, Brandon has been a member of A Crew of Patches who tour full folio Shakespeare plays, very early in the morning, in and around high schools in the Chicago area.

To be a part of Strawdog Theater and the opportunity to create, learn, and grow in a community of other skilled artists is something that Brandon will ever be thankful for. He has an affinity for Shakespeare, shadow plays, stage combat, radio plays, Greek tragedies and plays no one dreams of producing in a theater space this size. Being allowed to play in this ensemble, in this community, is a privilege and a joy.

His favorite color is deep horizon blue. His favorite places are usually cities near large bodies of water.
