WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - J. Jake Thomas got bitten by the theater bug when he was in sixth grade.
That's when he was in a Watertown Lyric Theater production of "Oliver." He's been performing ever since and now has his sights set on Broadway.
The stage performer from Watertown is the 7 News Arts All-Star for February 17, 2020.
He says performing is his way of contributing to society, “because I found it to be so therapeutic for myself as a performer, but also as an audience member.”
