Will Hantz


Will Hantz has been lighting up the stage at Bay Street since the age of 8. From his first performance as Christopher Robin as part of “Stages” and various roles in The Frankenstein Follies, to the role of “Little Jake” in the professional musical “Annie Get Your Gun”, Will has enjoyed every minute of his time in the spotlight.  Will appeared in the independent film “Kaleidoscope”, screened at The Montauk Film Festival, and joined the cast of Sun & Sea (a climate change opera) at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and on the road at the Philadelphia Fringe Festival. Will is excited to be back on his home turf and playing the role of Edgar in “Ragtime” this summer.  He will attend The Frank Sinatra High School of the Arts in September.
