Will Sturdivant

William is a Presidential Scholar in the Arts and an alumni of the University of MN/Guthrie Theater Actor Training Program. He has performed in over 30 Shakespeare productions Regionally and Off-Broadway. William is also a poet, director, and acting coach.

He is passionate about the necessity, especially for minorities, to find themselves represented in the classics. William believes the fundamental rhetorical devices present in Shakespeare are important to investigate, engage with, and utilize both on stage work and, more so, off in daily life.
