Meet the Cast - Christopher Sieber
Two-time Tony Award nominee, Christopher Sieber, makes his Alliance Theatre debut in the role of Trent Oliver in The Prom. Those Tony noms came from his work in Spamalot (original cast), and Shrek the Musical (Lord Farquaad), but those are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Chris’s phenomenal Broadway career. He’s been on stage there for 15 years, including Beauty and the Beast, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Into the Woods, Chicago, Pippin, and two years as the evil headmistress, Agatha Trunchbull, in Matilda the Musical.
Christopher is probably best known for his work as Kevin Burke on the TV show, “Two of a Kind” starring as Dad to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, but his TV repertoire is also pretty impressive… “Sex and the City,” “It’s All Relative,” “Ed,” “Elementary,” “The Good Wife,” “Law & Order: SVU” and numerous soaps, where, as he says “his recurring characters never went anywhere...”
Christopher’s career got its start at the age of 9, performing in his parents’ living room, including original pieces like, Christopher Sieber Comedy Cavalcade of 1976 and MOM! WATCH ME! Soon after these breakout performances, he graduated from Forest Lake Area High School in Forest Lake, Minnesota, and he was inducted into the Forest Lake Schools Hall of Fame in June, 2011. Hmmm, wonder if they have any of Christopher’s prom photos laying around…?
Christopher is hilarious and we are thrilled to have him in town for this sweet and touching musical. Come check him out! You can follow Christopher on Twitter at @therealsieber.
