Say hello to Peyton Tucker, returning for his third season at The Bigfork Summer Playhouse!
What role(s) do you play at the BSP?
This season I am:
Leaf Conneybear in Spelling Bee
Emmett in Legally Blonde
Uncle Max in Sound of Music
Ensemble in Spamalot
Ensemble in Chicago
In previous years I was Harold Hill in Music Man, Old Joe in Damn Yankees, and Alfred P. Doolittle in My Fair Lady.
How long have you been involved in theatre?
I got into singing at a young age in my church choir. It wasn’t until the end of my junior year of high school that I decided to go into music theatre, and from there I dove right in. I attended Florida State University where I received my BFA in Musical Theatre. And from there I’ve worked at the Bigfork Summer Playhouse for three summers.
I have also worked in regional theaters appearing as Cornelius Hackl in Hello, Dolly! and worked as a Supernumerary at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. I’ve also appeared on TV in Smash, The Good Wife, Brain Games, and Restaurant Stakeout.
How long have you been at Bigfork Summer Playhouse? This is my third year here at the BSP, and after three years of trying to come and work here I finally put it to DT like this in the callback room at SETC. I said, “Look I love your theatre. I have wanted to work with you for three years. Now are we gonna make this work?” And from there I was hired and have continued to come back year after year.
I love this place and I am continually grateful that I have the privilege to come out to this little piece of “heaven on earth” and do what I love with such amazing people!! I will never be able to thank Frank, DT, Brach, and Dwayne enough for all the memories and lifelong friends I have made here at the BSP.
What is your favorite thing to do in Bigfork?
This is soooo hard! I love going to see movies in Kalispell, spending the day at Wayfarers, or going hiking in Glacier. I love going down to the Raven or the Flathead Brewing Company. I love floating the Swan River, or just curling up with a good book down at the Docks.
I also love going to eat at Bearfoods and Great Northern. They are easily the best places to get food in town and I can often be found there. And finally (of course!) I love a great night down at the Garden Bar!
Anything else you’d like to add?
When not in Bigfork, I’m currently living in New York City.
