Originally from North Dakota, Jeff Burleson now resides in Dallas, TX. He has worked on multiple stages in the Great Plains area of the United States, ranging from Minneapolis, MN to Albuquerque, NM. Oklahoma City patrons likely recognize Jeff from his numerous "clown" roles at Reduxion Theatre, where he portrayed some of Shakespeare's sanest characters like Feste, Grumio, Dogberry and Costard. He also was seen on several other stages in the area, including Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma and the Pollard Theater in Guthrie. Favorite roles from that era include Tom in Fat Pig, Peter in Bug, and Atticus Finch in To Kill A Mockingbird. Mr. Burleson had the honor of working with the late Jac Alder at Theatre3 in Dallas for two shows, Other Desert Cities and Seminar upon his arrival in Dallas. Since that time he has worked throughout the area, often at the Contemporary Theater of Dallas and at Circle Theater in Fort Worth. Jeff has also been fortunate enough to work with Michael Serrecchia in a handful of productions at a couple of stages in the Metroplex. He was part of the multiple award winning show Fellowship: A Musical Parody of The Lord of the Rings, and has been nominated for several other BWW awards. Favorite roles in Dallas aside from those mentioned above include Eldon Phelps in The Dead Guy, Randle McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Next, and his upcoming role in March which has not yet been announced. Jeff Burleson is a ten year veteran with the improv troupe "Everybody and their Dog," and gained a somewhat notorious, albeit short-lived, celebrity with his blue improv troupe "Stretchin' It." He's a recognizable face in several regional commercials and small-budget movies made in the Texas and Oklahoma.
