Gerry McIntyre (Hangar Theatre) Tyrone Kiaku was raised in the Raleigh, North Carolina area, and discovered his first love, music, at church and while attending The Nutcracker ballet. After discovering this passion, he became a student of music (piano and trumpet). Even though he was studying instrumental music, he always dreamed of singing & acting on stage. Two years into pursuing a Trumpet Performance degree at Western Carolina University, he rediscovered this longing could not hold back his desire anymore! He started singing with his university’s Singing group Cat Singers & Electric Soul and taking acting class at his university. In 2018 he received a Bachelor of Music degree from Western Carolina University and decided to pursue learning the craft of acting. Over the past 2 years, he has been apart of multiple regional, community, and educational theatrical productions and has started his vocal/acting training. Going forward, Tyrone is interested in making art that challenges perspectives, reflects the current culture, and evokes emotional responses.
