From King Midas to Marcus Lycus

Montana West Rizzuto plays Marcus Lycus in a Honolulu production of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” He first appeared on stage at Altamont Elementary School.

To the Editor:

It was at Altamont Elementary School in his second grade class production that Montana West Rizzuto, my son, got his first taste of acting as King Midas, then again as a cast member of “The Tempest” in 2002.

After high school, he pursued his dream by studying theater at the University of Hawaii where he received his bachelor of arts degree in 2012.  This April, after a four-week run, he completed his role as Marcus Lycus in “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” at Manoa Valley Theatre in Honolulu, Hawaii.
