Director, Performer

“unerring musicality”
-Virginia Newes, The Boston Musical Intelligencer

“I’ve never been more convinced than by this smoldering rendition of the [Seguidilla] scene.”
“A scene from contemporary composer Jake Heggie’s
Dead Man Walking…was, for me, the most moving scene of the afternoon.”
-Susan Galbraith,,

“Teddy Crecelius played Nero…singing and performing…beautifully, with just the right amount of restraint.”
-John Brandenburg, The Oklahoman

As a lifelong performing artist, Teddy Crecelius has always delighted in music and theater from every vantage point — from the stage to the wings to the back of the house. He began his career as a boy soprano and child actor, described by The Boston Globe as “like an unexpected blessing.” His path as an artist has been unconventional, spanning diverse artistic genres and geographical boundaries. Past engagements include professional and university productions across the United States, Japan, and Thailand. From 2013-2015 Teddy taught on the Music Theater Faculty at Mahidol University College of Music in Bangkok, Thailand. He returned to the USA in order to participate in the 2015 Glimmerglass Festival Young Artist Program.

Teddy holds degrees in Music (Voice Performance) and Theatre (Directing/Acting) from University of Oklahoma and Middlebury College. While at Middlebury, Teddy met his wife, Aleks Schoen, who has collaborated with him on several productions as costume designer. They live in Acton, MA in a historic house with their brilliant, beautiful son Emerson and unbelievably adorable cats Mabel and Galileo.

An experienced church soloist, Teddy’s regular repertoire also includes a variety of sacred music.
