Graduate Ensemble

Class of 2022

Isaac Baker

is an actor and EMC candidate who is delighted to be making his public debut with Cleveland Play House. Isaac graduated from the University of Evansville in the spring of 2019, where he played Bruce Bechdel in the collegiate premiere of Fun Home. During his tenure at Evansville he also played Andrew Carnes in Oklahoma!, Georg Zirschnitz in Spring Awakening, Pa Joad in Frank Galati’s Grapes of Wrath, Albert Thornton in Horton Foote’s Lily Dale, and Antonio in Twelfth Night. Some of his other past credits include Lorenzo in The Merchant of Venice with the Great River Shakespeare Festival, John Proctor in the Pheonix Theatre’s The Crucible, and Ansel in Brute Candor Production’s premiere of The Cyprus Hatley Chapel. Isaac also was scheduled to make his CPH premiere as John Dodge in Will Eno's Middletown before the production was sadly canceled due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Isaac finds his continued work with CPH to be the utmost privilege, and his heart has been filled by becoming a member of this amazing community of theatre.
