Live arts theatre is proud to present Lane Hunter to our audiences! While new to stage acting, he is a seasoned performer and it shows. Lane studied percussion performance, music education, French, and language and linguistics at KSU and graduated Summer 2017. His degree is officially a BS in Integrative Studies. Lane has been a professional performing musician for seven years now, builds pipe organs, and occasionally works as a substitute teacher.
While Lane has always been drawn to acting he has never had an opportunity because of the time commitment to band. After playing in the pit for Fiorello, he finally saw the opportunity to jump into the world of theater. Lane is an ensemble member in the show Bad Ideas for Bad Television Shows.
