Chase D. Fowler

Actor | Director | Multi-hyphenate artist

Hello and welcome!My name is Chase D. Fowler (he/they), and I am a classically trained actor based in the Appalachian region. More specifically, I currently call Martinsburg, West Virginia home.I have both an MFA and an MLitt, both in Shakespeare and Performance from Mary Baldwin University where I acted in plays by Shakespeare, his contemporaries, and even the premiere of a restoration comedy by Elizabeth Polwhele called The Frolicks, or The Lawyer Cheated. Before my time at MBU, I received my B.A. in Theatre from Lenoir-Rhyne University, where I worked mainly with contemporary theatre and TYA.Besides acting, I also direct! During my time at MBU, I co-directed a production of Arden of Faversham, solo directed The Duchess of Malfi, and even directed the stage reading of a brand new work by one of my classmates, The Fall of Thebes, written by Andrew Steven Knight.When I'm not working on lines or developing a concept for yet another show, I can be found writing my own scripts, reading, or binge watching something on Netflix.
