Ryan Ballard

Ryan Ballard is a swing in the second national US tour of Waitress the Musical.

Ryan’s journey into musical theatre started at a young age, starring in the Children’s Playhouse when he was 6, before joining the Children’s Musical Theater in San Jose, when he was 8. “I was a really shy kid and performing very quickly brought me out of my shell. I loved it so much and made so my friends immediately and started just doing four shows every year.” He saw Waitress on Broadway, saying, “I’m super lucky to be doing a show I had my eye on a year after I graduated.”
