Dorsey Sprouls auditioned for a school play sometime in his tenth grade year and has more or less lived on and around the stage since. Appearing multiple times on his high school stage in Alice and Wonderland, Flaming Idiots, Bye Bye Birdie, and Blood Brothers, and getting statewide honors for the latter two, he grew to love working on the stage, and chose to continue his acting journey in Marquette, Michigan at Northern Michigan University, getting a B.S. in Theatre and Entertainment Arts, with a minor in Art and Design. He has performed in multiple shows at NMU's Forest Roberts Theatre and Lake Superior Theatre, also located in Marquette. Stage Credits there include The Producers, Monty Python's Spamalot, Little Shop of Horrors, and The Comedy of Errors. He has also tried his hand at designing, directing, set construction, and playwriting. Upon graduating, he moved to Brooklyn, New York, where he quickly was picked up by The Complete Theatre Company, with which he has participated in many short-form
immprov shows and variety shows. He made his full length debut with
CTC as well, performing as Benedick in the Shakespeare classic, Much
Ado About Nothing.
He has recieved recognition by the Hennipen Theater Trust's SpotLight
Education program, an Honorable Mention (Hugo Peabody, Bye Bye
Birdie) and a Superior (Mickey Johnstone, Blood Brothers). He has also
been twice nominated for the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship, once
for his role as Dromio of Syracuse in A Comedy of Errors and for his
roles as Billy Warren and Stu Franklin in California Suite.
