Roselin Stars in TUESDAYS
When Stephan Roselin says he has been an actor “forever,” he isn’t kidding. He was three years old when he first appeared on the air. His parents produced public service announcements and often recruited him for roles.
“I was the baby in the bike safety message,” Roselin said. “I got the acting bug from doing those announcements and kept at it through the years.”
Roselin plays “Mitch” in the Sunset Playhouse production, TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, March 11 to April 3. Mitch is the former student of Morrie Schwartz, whose wit and wisdom has endeared him to legions of theatergoers.
An internship with the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre brought Roselin to the city in 1991. The New York City area native had completed a master’s degree in Fine Arts at Case Western Reserve University and was looking for an opportunity. He found that Milwaukee had wonderful theatre companies and many other advantages.
After his internship ended, a stint as “Andy,” the host of the Fox Kids Club on WCGV TV, led to promotion and marketing work for local television. As the result of a role with the Shorewood Players in A FEW GOOD MEN, he became a co-founder of the theatre company, Bialystock & Bloom. The group was part of the Milwaukee scene for 11 years, providing a niche for new talent and producing theatre with provocative themes.
“It was a chance to do everything—direct, act, produce—I really became immersed in theatre. It was really fun.”
Acting is a true love, says Roselin. He has played a variety of parts with Next Act Theatre, Renaissance Theatre, First Stage Children’s Theater, and other Milwaukee groups. He also does commercials and voiceovers.
“You find a balance,” said Roselin, who is the Promotions Specialist at Time Warner Cable Media where he develops events and campaigns that support advertising efforts. “I have been able to stay in touch with my artistic side over the years.”
