Derek Penner is absolutely thrilled to be making his Rose debut playing Percy! He is a Junior at Blair High School and enjoys being involved in Show Choir, Drama Club, Jazz Band, Tri-M, NHS, and FBLA. He also enjoys being on his church’s worship team, and recording his own music. This is Derek’s first musical outside of school productions. In the past Derek has played Sky in Mamma Mia and Will Bloom in Big Fish the Musical, both at Blair High School. He would like to thank his whole family for always supporting him and his involvement with theater and music. He’d also like to thank his current and past directors for continuing to push him to succeed in not only the arts, but all aspects of life.
