Perhaps SMUS was peering into a crystal ball, or through the Colin Skinner window in the Chapel, when Ajay Parikh-Friese, Class of 2016, was awarded the Colin Skinner Trophy for excellence in musical theatre in his graduating year.
Since his time at SMUS, Ajay has landed key roles in several popular television series, most recently in two Netflix featured series, Lost in Space and ReBoot: The Guardian Code. He also had a recurring role on the BBC America-Netflix show Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, and will have a role in the upcoming Netflix series The Order. He also continues to focus on his passion for music and songwriting. We are proud to discover in his IMDB bio that he fondly remembers his experience as the Phantom in our SMUS production of Phantom of the Opera.
Please join us as we tell Ajay to ‘break a leg’ in all his future roles, and wish him continued success in his career in the entertainment industry.
