Kaden received his BFA from Marshall University in West Virginia (Go Herd!) where he worked with the Appalachian Artists Collective to bring theatre to underfunded schools. He was a supervisor for Cedar Point’s Live Entertainment in Sandusky, OH, before moving to Detroit to complete his MFA in Set Design at Wayne State University. Kaden freelanced as a set designer and technical director for several Detroit theatres and schools, and found a special home with Ghostlight Inc., where he helped launch an expansion of the Obsidian Theatre Festival – a project dedicated to producing new-work plays by BIPOC playwrights and collaborators. Kaden is excited to bring his passion for accessibility and environmental sustainability to Theatre SilCo, and is looking forward to all the new adventures Colorado has to offer.
