Hi. My name is Ben Krieger. I am 12 years old and I'm from a town called Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. I started being interested in musical theater after watching my older sister do a bunch of shows. One of the first things I ever did was participate in a Broadway review show at a theater called StarStruck in Stuart, Florida. I sang a solo called Corner of the Sky from the Tony-Award winning musical PIPPIN! A few months later, I was cast in two professional shows at a regional equity theater near where I live. It's called the Maltz Jupiter Theater. I was in FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and then I played the role of Gavroche in LES MISERABLES. That was the best! I knew for sure after those shows that I wanted to do this forever!
I started auditioning in New York City in April 2015. In June, I booked my first role! The role of Theo on The First National Tour of PIPPIN! I thought this was very cool because the first solo I had was from this show. I was on tour for nine months and even went to Japan and Amsterdam. A week after I got home, I joined THE SOUND OF MUSIC tour and appeared (as swing) in the roles of Kurt and Friedrich. I've just joined the company of FINDING NEVERLAND and will be traveling on the 1st National Tour. I’m so excited to be part of this production! When I'm not working, I play my Uke, I love playing Minecraft, listening to the HAMILTON and SOMETHING ROTTEN soundtracks, doing magic tricks, and watching great shows on Netflix. You can follow me on Instagram or Facebook or YouTube. I have an older sister and younger brother and my whole family loves musical theater! I'm very happy that they support me in this journey.
