Other Works:

Rex Young was an actor at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. He began his career there selling tarts. Rex led a post-show discussion in the Elizabethan theatre. Karl recalled "He's the poster boy for the what OSF is all about-exposure to the theatre at a young age, creating a passion that informs a life."
