Russell Norris

MFA Acting

​Russell arrived at The Theatre School after four years of honing his perspective in the basements, alleyways, and parks of New York City with innovative indie theatre companies. Credits include: a devised clown play inspired by Buster Keaton; a queer, butoh-influenced Macbeth; original plays dealing with looking for love online & coming of age in the apocalypse; a proof of concept for a pilot about gay Jesus in 2018; a site-specific Hedda Gabler in the oldest remaining farmhouse in Manhattan; short films about meditation, vlogging, and imposter syndrome; and a self-produced virtual one-man production of No Exit. Russell has a bachelor's degree in theatre from Muhlenberg College. Instagram: @russell_norris​
