Mitch Shira returns for his 3rd season with the Lyric Rep to play Edward Ferrars in Sense and Sensibility, Captain Robert Falcon Scott in Peter and the Starcatcher, Joseph Kennedy in Grey Gardens, and Macduff in Macbeth!
Homegrown in Utah, Mitch is currently a Junior in the BFA Acting Program at Utah State University. Before attending USU, he briefly attended The Academy of Art studying Motion Picture. As he has pursued his education and found that acting is where his passion lies, he has had the wonderful opportunity to be in many USU productions, most recently shows such as Awake and Sing (Moe Axelrod), Much Ado About Nothing (Don Pedro), and Once Upon A Mattress (Sir Harry). Past Lyric Rep credits include: Arsenic and Old Lace (Mortimer Brewster), Wait Until Dark (Sam Hendrix), Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged (Jess Winfield), and The Foreigner (Reverend David Lee).
