2019 Viola Award Finalist for Emerging Artist
Actor, director, and community liaison for the Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival, Cameron Scully was born and raised in Flagstaff, AZ. He graduated from Northland Preparatory Academy in 2012, then headed to Castleton State University in Vermont to pursue degrees in theater. After his graduation, Cameron returned to Flagstaff and hit the ground running.
His persistence and passion led him to the Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival, where he holds a position as the community liaison. In addition to his work in community outreach, he has acted in several FlagShakes shows including The Merry Wives of Windsor (Slender), All’s Well That Ends Well (Bertram), and Fool for Love (Martin). Most recently Cameron served as the assistant director in their production of The Tempest. Cameron also regularly participates in the Flagstaff Foundry and volunteers with other local nonprofit organizations.
During the production The Tempest, Cameron worked closely with the director, Christine Schmidle, from The Globe Theater inLondon. When she had to return to London midway through the production, Cameron stepped in as interim director of the play.
According to the FlagShakes Website, “Cameron is thrilled to be not only living his dream of doing theater in Flagstaff, but alsohaving the opportunity to work with the talented, amazing people that make up FlagShakes’s staff, board, and volunteers. As a Community Liaison, Cameron strives to cultivate new opportunities for the festival and create meaningful experiences for our wonderful community.”
On a personal level, Cameron has a deep desire to bring theater to areas of the state and region that have had very limited access to the craft. His dream to bring theater to more remote locations in the southwest, prisons, schools, and all possible underserved communities. Cameron’s desire to give back to his community is truly an inspiration to all.
