NICHOLAS JAPAUL BERNARD (Pharus Jonathan Young) (he/him) is a native of Rochester, New York and a Seattleite of five years now. He has had the opportunity to work with many theaters around town including The 5th, Seattle Rep, Seattle Children’s Theatre, Sound Theatre, ArtsWest, Strawberry Workshop, and Book-It Repertory Theatre. As a disabled, queer, and black artist, Bernard is interested in fostering an artistic world in which marginalized people have the space to both give breath to their own stories as well as not being regulated to that alone. We are more than our pain and more versatile than you’ve ever imagined.
