Jeremy Crittenden is an actor based in Vancouver, BC, Canada, where he works on stage and screen.
On film, he unveiled the treasure deep within the “holy chest of mystery” in the film Stan Helsing, written and directed by Bo Zenga (one of the creators of the “Scary Movie” franchise). On television, he has been seen in The Dead Zone and The L Word.
While he loves working in front of the camera, Jeremy’s true passion lies on the stage.
After more than 100 performances in 2009, Jer is returning to the hit musical “Altar Boyz” as Matthew this summer in Vancouver. Learn More.
Most recently, he played “Young Scrooge” and “The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come”, an 18-foot puppet, in A Christmas Carol at the Citadel Theatre in Edmonton. The massive ghost appears almost magically in the dark and although an incredible physical challenge to manipulate the giant rod-puppet, it’s one of the most exciting things he has ever done on stage.
Other credits include “Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart” in Amadeus (Chemainus Theatre Festival), “Planchet” in the world premiere of a new adaptation of The Three Musketeers by Tom Wood (Citadel Theatre), “Laurie” in Little Women: The Broadway Musical (Citadel Theatre), “The Stranger” in the critically acclaimed world premiere The Life Inside (Belfry Theatre), “Leaf Coneybear” in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Belfry & Arts Club Theatres), “Matthew” in Altar Boyz (BC Tour & Arts Club Theatre), and “Man #1″ in The World Goes ‘Round (Another Musical Co-op).
“Critty” lives in Vancouver’s historic Gastown neighborhood with his husband, Jeremy Mitchell, and their dog Sebastian. When he’s not singing (which is constant… just ask the neighbors), Jeremy has a passion for designing kick-ass websites through his own company, Critty Design Co., and geeking out over anything with an Apple logo on it. He also loves great food (although he rarely cooks) and fantastic wine, especially from BC. The two Jeremys try to travel as often as humanly possible, having been through most of Europe, Japan, Eastern Australia, the East and West Coasts of the United States and seven Canadian Provinces.
