USP is excited to have two Theatre Central students on stage for our Tulip Time production of Tulip House. Our community theatre is fortunate to have access to the minds, resources and talent that exist at Central College, and Jason Chohon is a great example.
Jason is a Theatre major at Central and hails from Columbus, NE. He has been in shows like Flags and The Wrestling Season at Central. While this is his first production on USP’s home stage, he has performed with USP members in the Pella Shakespeare Company and his abilities are well-known to the USP veterans.
Jason plays the part of "Ken" the videographer who has the responsibility of filming all that takes place in the Tulip House, a reality TV show in which a California family must spend nine weeks living as the Van Zee family in 1935. While Jason’s part has relatively few lines, his character is a constant presence on stage – which can be a challenge for the most experienced of actors.
When asked about Tulip House, Jason responds, "This is a great new play with great history. I’m enjoying working with all the people from the community!"
