John Hosking

King Lear / Captain

John Hosking graduated from MSU and first toured with MSIP in 1974 (the first full touring summer of Shakespeare in the Park). He was a member of the Hillberry Graduate Repertory Theater at Wayne State University. He then worked professionally for three years with ACT Seattle. He performed at the Virginia City Opera House. John co-founded the Vigilante Theatre Co., where he was an actor and director and toured Montana and the region for 33 years. You may have seen John at the Black Box as Willy Lohman in “Death of a Salesman”, or at the Ellen Theatre this winter as Scrooge in "Christmas Carol", or in many other venues around the state. (Wide Open Door is John's recently released music album.)
