ABOUT ME

        Connor Allston was born and raised in the mitten-shaped state -  dropped off by a stork in Ypsilanti (good luck pronouncing that),   moved from Brighton at a young age, and spent the remainder of his childhood in the small town of Shelby Township, Michigan.  He is a superhero geek, dog lover, and sushi enthusiast.

        Connor has gained a wealth of knowledge, wisdom, and training from his Alma Mater, Otterbein University, located in the cozy little town of Westerville, Ohio.  Due to Otterbein's small, conservatory-type feel, he has received individualized instruction from his professors, being only one of four male musical theatre majors in his class.   Connor will never be able thank his instructors enough for all of his acting training in Stanis, Shakespeare, Laban, TV/Film, etc.

        In 2016, he received the Leslie Burrell-Mangia Musical Theatre Award for academic achievement in the study of musical theatre for his work at Otterbein - Connor has been blessed to have played so many life-changing roles during his college career, such as: Jerry Lukowski in The Full MontyRoger Davis in RENT, and also had the privilege to have worked alongside his former department chair, Dr. John Stefano, where Connor played Perchik to John's Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof.

        In the summer 2016, Connor, and 7 other Otterbein musical   theatre majors, had the privilege to share the Ohio Theatre stage in Columbus with Broadway star and Tony & Emmy-winning actress, Kristin Chenoweth, singing back-up for her "Coming Home" tour.  
In fact, he and his classmates made such a great impression on her during the show that she asked for Otterbein again when she was performing in Cincinnati.

        Connor moved to New York City on the 1st of the new year for his six-week internship, slowly but surely approaching his senior showcase. But whatever happens, he plans to audition anywhere he can to pursue his career in the "greatest city in the world".
