Christian Acuna – Johnnie

Christian is eleven years old and he is thrilled to be in The Speakeasy at the Palace Theater.  He loves the stage and performing is a part of his being.  Christian is passionate about dance and he is Fritz in Contra Costa Ballet’s Nutcracker.   He discovered the wonder of musical theater with Berkeley Playhouse’s main stage Tarzan as a colorful young gorilla, and as a suave Teen Angel and Johnny Casino in Tomorrow’s Rising Stars’ Grease, after playing magical Lil’ Norbert with Poison Apple Productions’ The Happy Elf.   He has danced jazz, tap and ballet competitively in regional and national events.  On theater-free days, Christian is sure to be found at a baseball diamond on a mound, as he is an ace pitcher, or challenging his grandpa to a game of chess.
