Adam Altman (Core Company Member) – Adam first appeared on Hedgerow’s stage as the title role in Uncle Vanya; he is incredibly pleased to be able to continue to work with this talented group of artists in this historic venue. Adam’s first taste of acting was auditioning for the role of the lead kid (“Dylan” in the original sides) in the feature film Cop and a Half, starring Burt Reynolds. Though Adam actually got a callback, he ultimately failed the screen test because they wanted him to “arrest” a fully-grown adult for jaywalking; 7-year-old Adam found this far too ridiculous and consequently couldn’t keep a straight face. Much later, Adam became an Eagle Scout, attended college, and received purification in the fires of theme park entertainment. In addition to holding a BA in Theatre Performance from Seton Hill University, Adam also studied acting at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London, and with Olivier, Tony, and Helen Hayes award winner Jane Lapotaire. Adam is an Iron Age Theatre family member, having appeared in over 20 Iron Age productions. Some other companies with whom Adam has performed include: the Philadelphia Artists’ Collective, Delaware Shakespeare, Inis Nua, Theatre Horizon, Lantern Theater, Tiny Dynamite, Commonwealth Classic, Shakespeare in Clark Park, Montgomery Theater, Delaware Theatre Co, Arden Theatre Co, and the National Constitution Center. Adam lives in Glenside with his amazing wife Katie and their two sons Seamus & Lucius.
