Juan Duenas - Literary Director
Juan Duenas is junior pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre with an emphasis in Acting. Born in Bogota, Colombia and a native of Houston, Texas, he’s been obsessed with movies and television his entire life. Those passions pushed Juan to become involved with theatre at the age of five, primarily as an actor. He has also had experience off-stage and in other mediums of entertainment throughout the years and has recently become extremely passionate about writing for the stage as well. In the fall of 2017, he had the opportunity to assistant direct Freddy and Olive, a one-act play that was produced in collaboration with Brand New Theatre. Since then, he wanted to explore any other opportunities BNT could offer and is very excited to work with BNT once again, serving as the Assistant Literary Director for the BNT board. He can’t wait to see what stories BNT is getting ready to tell next!
