Myk Watford was raised in Russellville, Alabama, and is proud to return to UNA Summer Theatre for the third summer in a row. Mr. Watford directed Death of a Salesman in 2011 and took the stage as Stanley Kowalski in Summer Theatre 2012's hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire.
After graduating from Russellville High School, Mr. Watford attended The University of Utah’s prestigious Actor Training Program under full scholarship. From there he went to The Shakespeare Theatre in Washington D.C., with the inaugural Kenneth H. Washington Scholarship. He spent more than ten years in New York City, where, among others, he met his good friend and renowned writer/director Randal Myler and in the time since, they have worked together on countless productions. Mr. Watford is also proud and boundlessly inspired by the work of UNA theatre faculty Charlton D. James, who is bringing Broadway-caliber theatre to North Alabama, and is honored to once again share the stage with his long-time friend.
