Luke DeLorenzo (Lollypop Guild, Flying Monkey) is thrilled to be returning for his second production at Syracuse Stage. A seventh grader at Christian Brothers Academy (CBA), Luke made his Syracuse Stage debut last year in Mary Poppins (u/s Michael) and most recently appeared in the Redhouse production of The Secret Garden, Spring Version (Colin Craven). Other community theatre credits include A Christmas Carol (Daniel/Boy at Window) at Center for the Arts of Homer. Luke first discovered his love of acting at age four, performing in several Syracuse Children’s Theatre productions including Hairy Tale Rock (Bill) and The Rockin’ Tale of Snow White (The King) as well as numerous school productions. School credits include Elf the Musical JR. (Michael), Dorothy in Wonderland (Tin Man), The Rockin’ Tale of Snow White (The DNR Rep), Alice in Wonderland (The White Rabbit) and Peter Pan (Smee/Michael). Thrilled to be selected to train recently in the Senior Pre-Professional Program at A Class Act NY in NYC, Luke would like to thank his parents and his many local drama instructors, directors, and mentors for their inspirational guidance and support of his passion. He is especially grateful for the support shown by his CBA teachers throughout this production, and would like to thank the entire cast and production team of The Wizard of Oz for the opportunity to be a part of this brilliant and memorable stage experience. Luke wishes you all safe travels as you follow the yellow brick road to your own Land of Oz.
