Ken Womble

Ken Womble is the Head of Acting and Professor of Theatre at the University of Northern Colorado.

His book, Inside Act: How Ten Actors Made It—and How You Can Too (Hansen Publishing Group), was hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “a 2014 book that flew under the radar.”

Ken’s adaptations of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Importance of Being Earnest, published with Eldridge Publishing, have been produced throughout the U.S. Arms and the Man is his third adaptation for Eldridge.

Ken wrote and directed the first-ever documentary film on novelist James Michener, James A. Michener, An Epic Life, for which he was named UNC Scholar of the Year. He also directed and co-produced the short film An Equal Opportunity, which was named Best Inspirational Short at the Olympus Film Festival Los Angeles.

As an actor, Ken has appeared in two Off Broadway premieres and was the voice of a BBC radio announcer in the world premiere of Freud’s Last Session. He has had recurring roles on Guiding Light, General Hospital and All My Children, and is a member of Actors Equity and SAG/AFTRA.

Ken has directed over sixty plays, including Lobby Hero, Proof and First Date at Colorado’s Little Theatre of the Rockies, and award-winning productions of August: Osage County, Clybourne Park, and The Cherry Orchard at UNC.
