Welcoming Ashley Hannon to the BoHo Family!

BoHo Theatre is pleased to introduce you to our newest face, our brand new Social Media Coordinator, Ashley Hannon.

Ashley got bit by the theater bug at a young age when he performed in a kids play at the age of seven. As a lad growing up in Marietta, Georgia, he continued to perform in local plays and musicals and went onto Wright State University where he received his BFA in Musical Theatre. Following graduation, Ashley toured with Sesame Street: Elmo Makes Music. He then moved to New York City where he worked as the Company Manager for the Zipper Theater Company before relocating to Chicago.

BoHo: Ashley, what drew you to BoHo?

Ashley: Two things, really. One, I have friends who are involved in the Company and always talked about what a the great group of people involved. I loved the idea of having a place to go collaborate and be creative. I came out and saw a few shows during the 2011-2012 Season, including The Rainmaker and Floyd Collins and I was hooked. The work I saw reignited my love of theater, and I thought this was a great opportunity to reconnect to my artistic side while contributing to a growing organization.

BoHo:What are you most looking forward to in the coming months?

I really look forward to working with a fantastic group of artists who share an extraordinary vision. I’m also looking forward to seeing everything that BoHo has in store for its 10th Season. It’s an exciting time to be a part of the organization.

BoHo: As the newest face of BoHo, what’s one fun fact you want folks to know about you:

True Story: When I was in second grade, I alternated between watching Funny Girl, The Little Rascals, and Mrs. Doubtfire every day after school.

Favorite Composer? Stephen Sondheim

Favorite Musical? Ragtime

Favorite role you have played?: MacHeath in Three Penny Opera

Ashley is currently masterminding BoHo’s social media presence in coordination with the rest of the BoHo marketing team. You can also connect with him throughout the 10th season at BoHo events and opening nights.
