Nate began his journey with CTA in 2018 with High School Musical. Since then, he has
performed in Willy Wonka, Grease, Letters to Sala, The Very Grey Matter of Edward Blank,
Tuck Everlasting, Beauty and the Beast, and The Yellow Boat. His hobbies include playing the
guitar, disc golf, fashion, collecting records, reading, and writing music. He intends to attend
Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee this fall to persue his Bachelor of Fine Arts in
Musical Theatre, and one day perform on a Broadway stage! His motivations are making beautiful art that moves people and to create art that amplifies the glory of our Creator.
“To my parents, thank you for being my biggest fans and toughest critics. Without you, I would not be where I am today. To Megan, thank you for showing me there is so much more inside me than I thought. Without you and the CTA family, I would have no idea where my life would be headed.
And to the friends I’ve made along the way, we have lived high school together; the last four
years will forever be a part of who I am. The good days where we laughed so hard it hurt, to the
bad days where we felt like just giving up, I wouldn’t trade these memories for the world. From the plains of Nebraska, to the snowy streets of Louisville, I will never forget the times we shared.
When I started high school, I thought I couldn’t wait to get out, but now I find it hard to leave. It will not be easy waking up every day and knowing that I will no longer be preparing for another show on this stage, no more waiting for the season announcement, no more waiting on the cast list, no more prayers together before shows. If only I could turn back the time.
Once a CTA kid, always a CTA kid.”
1 Corinthians 13:13
“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
“It’s our last chance to share the stage before we go our separate ways. High school wasn’t
meant to last forever. It’s our last chance to shine, to bring the music one more time.”
-Ryan Evans, High School Musical 3
