Erik Austin

Erik began his diverse career at the young age of five dressing up with family members and putting on "basement shows" for his neighbors. A native of Indiana, Erik and his family moved to San Luis Obispo, CA where he and his sister, Kelley formed their own theater company, Kelrik Productions, at the age of 13. After graduating in Musical Theater at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City, Erik and his company took the plunge to the big city of Los Angeles in 1997 with the simple purpose of providing quality theater and youth workshops. Some 15 years from its beginnings, Kelrik is still continuing its efforts. Under Erik’s artistic direction, the Company has received numerous awards including a very special award from the Senate of California for excellent children’s services. Kelrik was also voted "Best Children’s Theater" in Los Angeles by LA Parent Magazine. When not producing shows, Erik is busy teaching workshops throughout the state of California and in Montessori Children’s Schools, inviting students into an exciting and nurturing environment in which they may explore the power of theater and their own imaginations. As a performer, Erik’s Off-Broadway credits include I Love a Piano and Waiting for Godot, where he played the role of Lucky. Other favorite roles in theater include The Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors, Cat in the Hat in Seussical: The Musical, Linus in You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown, the title role in Aladdin, Frank N’Furter in Rocky Horror Live and Captain Hook in Peter Pan.
