College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
Musical Theatre Major
Hometown: Somers Point, N.J.
Activities and Achievements: Gaskill has performed in 16 mainstage productions with Wilkes University Theatre, four dance shows, six black box productions and many choral concerts. While he is the triple threat– singing, dancing and acting–Gaskill also knows how to work behind the scenes, doing set construction, costuming, stage management, props running crew, lighting and painting.
Noteworthy: Gaskill had lead roles in five Wilkes productions.
Favorite part of the Wilkes experience: “The highlight of my time here at Wilkes was all of the training I received within the field I am studying. I got so much personal attention because of the smaller class sizes that I really grew and found where I belong within this crazy, hectic career path.”
Future plans: Gaskill will be a full-time resident actor with the Charleston Stage Company. He will be featured in a minimum of seven shows, including playing the leading role, Ren McCormick, in Footloose.
