Seth Bowling is ecstatic to be the newest addition to the MET2 family as the Associate Director. A recent transplant to Southern California, he gratefully makes his return to the world of theater after spending the last decade as a librarian on the Gulf Coast.
As the Director of Programming for the Orange Beach Public Library, Seth planned and coordinated an array of programs for his adult patrons, from classical guitarists and book groups, to Pulitzer Prize winning authors. During his time as a teen services librarian, his summer programs shattered attendance records. Throughout his tenure, he was often to be found hosting story time for the youngest members of his library family.
Seth holds a BFA in Musical Theater from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. As an actor, he has been privileged to perform with Tony winners Sutton Foster, Laura Benanti, Jason Alexander, Karen Olivo, and Judy Kaye. He has toured the US as both the “Bishop” and “Thenardier” in Les Miserables, and taken it to China with Colm Wilkinson. Additionally, he was in the original cast of Summer off-Broadway. Other favorite roles include “Don Quixote” in Man of La Mancha, “Mendel” in Falsettos, “Elwood” in Harvey, “Smudge” in Forever Plaid, and “John” in john and jen.
