Robert “RJ” Murphy

. . .

Robert “RJ” Murphy (Travis Younger) is a vibrant, energetic 5th grader at Jamesville DeWitt Middle School. He considers it an honor and privilege to make his professional acting debut in A Raisin in the Sun. He has always loved theatre and has performed in school and community productions including Annie Jr., Oz the Musical, and Hansel & Gretel.  RJ’s favorite part of acting is entertaining audiences and dreams to one day perform on Broadway. RJ would like to thank his parents and sister, Ryann, for their love, support, and sacrifice. He would also like to thank director Timothy Douglas, his fellow cast members, and everyone at Syracuse Stage for giving him this amazing opportunity. Finally, he would like to thank his extended family who traveled from afar and the countless friends who took time out of their busy schedules to see him as Travis Younger.
