Bryan Staggers

Actor

Raised in the foothills of the Appalachians, Bryan spent his first twenty-two years in wild and wonderful West Virginia. His early days were spent roaming the creeks and mountains of his family’s farm in small town Keyser, West Virginia. He still enjoys being outdoors—hiking, camping, or hunting.

Bryan is a graduate of West Virginia University with his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting. The BFA program at WVU includes extensive training in Meisner technique and Shakespeare, as well as intensives in clowning, film acting, and musical theatre. Favorite roles at WVU include Cliff in Cabaret, Jim in The Glass Menagerie, and Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

In the summers of 2015 and 2016, Bryan performed the role of John Borden in The Lost Colony on Roanoke Island in North Carolina. He worked at B Street Theatre in Sacramento, California as an acting intern from October 2015-April 2016. At B Street, Bryan understudied or performed in six productions (five world premieres) including Boar in Anansi The Spider, Terrence in Handle with Care, and Percy/Henry in Frankenstein.

Bryan currently resides in Morgantown, WV where he has worked with Golden Horseshoe, Inc. and West Virginia Public Theatre. He is represented by Docherty Talent Agency in Pittsburgh, PA.
