A seasoned cabaret performer with more than 20 years’ stage experience, Greg Stickroth has sung in venues from Los Angeles to New York and everywhere in between.
Originally from Ohio, Greg majored in theatre at the University of Toledo. While in college, he appeared in shows such as The Boyfriend, the musical revue Starting Here, Starting Now, and starred as the Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance. He also studied ballet, jazz, and modern dance.
It was during college that he started doing cabaret. While performing summer stock and serving as a waiter, Greg discovered that he had an affinity for performing in more intimate spaces. “The audience would leave the mainstage and come into a smaller room, where we – the waiters – would serve wine and cheese,” says Greg. “After a while, we would take turns performing in an open mic setting. I found that I really enjoyed the casual interaction between myself and the audience.”
Greg moved to New York City shortly after graduation and established himself on the cabaret circuit. He has performed at hallowed venues such as The Duplex (Bridges, Kick up Your Heels), Rose’s Turn (Greg Stickroth), and Don’t Tell Mama. During his time in the city, he also took performance classes with the esteemed Tony Award-winner Betty Buckley.
Relocating to Tucson, Greg joined Reveille Men’s Chorus and was a featured soloist for the group. During that time, he performed with acapella group Take 5 and continued to develop different cabaret shows, including You, Me, and Sondheim and Perfect Strangers. Greg briefly returned to New York City before making his way to the West Coast.
A resident of Los Angeles for the past 10+ years, Greg is a fixture in the Southern California theatre scene. Among others, he has performed in Paradise, West Hollywood – a show that recounts how West Hollywood became a city unto itself and the politics involved in that. Through it all, he has remained committed to cabaret. He frequently hosts open mic nights at locations such as MJ’s, The Lyric Café, The Other Side, and Steady Point.
Greg currently resides in Atwater Village - next to Griffith Park, where he has a beautiful view of leafy green trees and horse stables from his balcony.
