Graduating Student from a Canadian Theatre School

Haneul Yi

Haneul Yi (he/him) is an actor-musician, music director, composer/arranger and multi-instrumentalist. His love for music and storytelling/expression is what keeps him hooked on musical theatre. In a nutshell, he loves the ‘magic carpet’ moment, when the audience, actors, and band are all on one page, thinking the same thought, taking in the same breath. Having completed his final year at Sheridan, Haneul is still hungry to learn, dipping his toes into different creative roles. He is never hesitant about putting whatever feels dreary to the side for a while and pursuing what invigorates him in the moment.
