Actor Chris Byrom on NWT

Chris Byrom of Cleveland is shy and hadn’t been on stage since high school, but Near West Theatre’s group-oriented audition process and rehearsals made him feel at home.  He’s in the cast of Ragtime, closing this weekend with three performances, May 18 and 19 at 7:30 and May 20 at 3 p.m. Get tickets and info here, or call 216-961-6391 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. (weekdays only). “Giving yourself permission to be yourself — just letting yourself go in front of a lot of people and then having the people respond in a positive way: I’m glad that happened, because I’m quite shy,” Chris says in the video interview below. “It was just a big welcome for me. … I feel more open and more confident in myself.”
