Scott Caron is a professional director, choreographer, actor and educator, dually based in the Boston and New York City theater communities. He is currently a mentee of Elliot Norton Award winning director, Allison Olivia Choat, with Moonbox Productions in Boston.
During his 2018 residence at Gloucester Stage Company under Artistic Director Robert Walsh, Caron developed a handful of new works. He directed a staged-reading of Rough Out by Broadway veteran and Drama Desk Winner Jim DeMarse, as well as an all-female production of Virtuous Reality by Boston playwright Hortense Gerardo for Boston Theater Marathon XX. He served as an assistant director under Ellie Heyman (Director in Residence of Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater) for the World Premiere of Wendy Kesselman’s Madame Defarge, as well as under Walsh on the World Premiere of My Station in Life.
Caron choreographed and assistant directed Gloucester Stage Company’s recent production of Dancing at Lughnasa. Under the direction of IRNE Award Winner Benny Sato Ambush, the production received outstanding notices, including for Caron’s choreography, which “…casts a dreamlike spell” [Don Aucoin, The Boston Globe].
Caron is a co-founder of the Regatta Players, a local theater group in Central Massachusetts, for which he served as a Board Member for seven years. He made his directorial and choreographic debut with the group’s production of First Date: The Musical. He steered the company to outstanding critical reception with a sold-out run of Evita, a production that centered contemporary feminist politics and the personal experiences of his female cast members.
As an educator, Caron has lead over fifty students to Grand National Finals in Speech and Debate competitions within the past eight years. He utilizes methods learned in his own acting career to critically engage drama and public speaking students in their craft through exercises, lectures and master classes.
Caron has established a career as a dynamic character actor in just over five years. He has appeared in regional theaters in throughout the east coast with roles ranging from Flounder in Disney’s The Little Mermaid to Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar. Most recently, he’s appeared Off-Broadway in the Time’s Out New York Critic’s Pick, The Imbible: A Spirited History of Drinking at New World Stages.
He is a 2012 graduate of the Hartt School (University of Hartford), holding a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music Theatre.
