“Ryan’s commitment to theatre and the arts in the Waukesha and Milwaukee communities is inspiring,” said Dyllan Brown, media coordinator for Outskirts Theatre. “Outskirts Theatre has grown over the past six years to become a well-known name by theatre goers, reviewers, and artists. Many of the productions Ryan decides to produce with the company have LGBT themes, and this work has brought a lot of discussions and thought-provoking art into our community.
“Ryan is an incredible leader, he leads his team with such passion and commitment. As a gay man, Ryan works to create a voice for all of the LGBT community through his work with Outskirts Theatre and with the many other organizations he works with.”
