The Civil War Cast Member Jonathan Viguers

Our next musical, THE CIVIL WAR, is fast approaching and we would like to take a minute to introduce you to one of our cast members, Jonathan Viguers. THE CIVIL WAR will be Mr. Viguers’ first performance here at Vive Les Arts. However, he is not completely new to theatre. Jonathan’s family has been a part of the theatre for years including his wife Meredith, who starred in THE PRODUCERS and SHOUT, and his son Steven, who starred in BEAUTY & THE BEAST. With his family members having been a part of Vive Les Arts, Jonathan was led to continue the family tradition by being a part of THE CIVIL WAR. Not only that, Jonathan’s love of history, his 7-year choir experience, and having been a part of the United States military also played a key role in his wanting to be a part of our latest production. Jonathan came to Killeen in 2001 when he joined the military and currently lives in Harker Heights, TX. He serves the City of Killeen as a firefighter and paramedic. You might also recognize him as a business owner of a restaurant/catering service in Killeen called Let Us Do the Cooking.  It’s truly amazing how someone with such a busy schedule can still find the time to provide such a talented performance to our community! If you haven’t clicked on the video yet, take a moment to check out an amazing sneak peek from his upcoming performance.
