The Creative Team

JOSH BROOK
(Production Photographer/Documentarian)

Josh Brook is tremendously excited about being a part of this project. This is Josh’s third year at KSU. You may have seen him in last season's productions of Side By Side By Sondheim at the Strand, Sarah Ruhl’s Melancholy Play or Annie Get Your Gun. He would like to commend the tenacious cast and creative team for their beautiful work. His pursuit of acting/directing will be greatly influenced by his involvement in this show. He would like to thank Harrison Long for asking him to journey with him down the Mississippi. He is now a professional type writing machine! He would also like to thank his father for being patient with him in creating the documentary for this magnificent piece. Enjoy!
