Aaron J. Stewart
My name is Aaron J. Stewart. I was born in Poughkeepsie, New York, and was raised right across the Hudson Bridge in Highland, New York. I’ve been living In New York my whole life, but I’m grateful to live near a city where there’s always something exciting happening! I’m currently a Sophomore BFA actor at the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Theatre Arts. For the past two years here, I’ve developed my craft to levels I never thought I could reach. I’m forever grateful for the help I received from my amazing faculty, and forever thankful for the inspiration I receive on a daily basis from my company members. I’ve always loved the art of acting, and playing the characters of the Judge and Orderly in Roe v Wade makes me love and appreciate the type of art I do even more. To be able to play two different characters; One with loads of anger and power, the other filled with buoyancy and enthusiasm. They're both so satisfying to embody. Working on this production has been an eye-opening experience. Not only because of the mass amount of knowledge I accumulated from my research on the case, but also working on the production side too. We weren't given a budget or a stage for this show; So we had to become our own production team, create our own budget, and make our own music. It was a long process, but I believe we all put in work to make this show something really special. I want to give a shoutout to the Mom and Pops for helping me out and always having my back no matter what, and all my close friends that are always down for a good conversation. I love you all!
