About Adam Sartain

 

Adam has been performing just about his entire life, from talent shows in Elementary school to Band and Orchestra to Independent Films to Community Theatre. Taking a State job in 2007, he inspected low-income housing, auditing files and conducting physical inspections. Though he had a day job as a bureaucrat, he continued to support and participate in the performing arts. He joined the Citrus Heights Community Marching Band in 2007 and became it's director in 2009, leaving in 2010 to focus on a State Assembly Campaign where he recorded and produced his own radio ads with the help of friends. He began performing on stage with the Davis Musical Theatre Company in 2006 as the title character in their production of The Wizard of Oz and in 2010 joined their Board of Directors, becoming Vice President around 2013 all while performing in countless shows on stage. Being bit hard by the acting bug in 2016, he sold his house, quit his job, and resigned from 3 different non-profit boards to move to Hollywood and follow his dream of becoming a film/tv actor. Since, he has starred in a few student films, a national commercial for eHarmony (which he booked within 3 months of arriving), an episode of Exposed with Deborah Norville on Reelz Channel, and a web-series or 2. He has also lent his voice to a couple animated pilots and English dubs of 3 different Ultraman movies. More recently he jumped into producing and writing as he dusted off the script of a musical he collaborated on with friends starting in 2014 and creating an abridged version for the 2018 Hollywood Fringe Festival, which he executive produced alongside a team of producers and brought 7 performances to the Hollywood Fringe in June of 2018 to rave audience reviews. After winning an Encore award, the production went on for 3 more performances in July. In September of 2018, he booked his first "Under 5" role on an episode of TruTV's Adam Ruins Everything and thus earned his SAG Eligibility.
