Ryan Jay Moore is a graduate of the Bachelor of Theatre Program, concentrating in costume design with a minor in dance. He transferred to U-M in the winter semester of his sophomore year, and he is so grateful for all of the amazing opportunities he has had since coming to Michigan. During his first semester, Ryan was cast as Pilar in MUSKET’s production of Legally Blonde; the experience of getting to portray a feminine gay man like himself on stage changed his perception of his future as a performer. Originally content as a chorus boy in heteronormative narratives, he realized his immense love for telling queer stories that push the gender binary. He is looking forward to continuing the queer agenda after graduation through his acting, fashion design, and drag performance. Other University of Michigan credits include MUSKET: Newsies in Concert (Snipper); Rude Mechanicals: Eurydice (Loud Stone/Dance Captain), The Motherf**ker with the Hat (Costume Designer); UProd: Die Fledermaus (Assistant Director/Choreographer). Ryan would like to give a huge thank you to his parents for supporting and loving him throughout his entire journey, he couldn’t have done it without them.
