Lane Gibson, Jr.


LaneGibsonJr_headshotLane dabbled in acting throughout his childhood, but it wasn’t until college that he truly caught “the bug”. While at Champlain College, Lane starred in several productions before transferring to the University of Vermont to pursue a theater minor, where he continued to land leading roles in both main stage and student productions. After college, Lane pursued his musical interests, singing and writing in an original band for several years before returning to acting with a featured role in Lyric Theater Company’s production of Cinderella, which reignited his desire to become a professional actor. Lane was accepted into the prestigious Dorset Theatre Festival in Dorset, VT for the 2005 summer season, and received critical acclaim for his performance as “John” in The Lion In Winter. After Dorset, Lane continued his run of professional work with Vermont Stage Company, playing the villainous “Reverend David Lee” in 2005’s production of The Foreigner, and then a turn in Shaker Bridge Theater Company’s run of Greetings, where he played the dual role of “Mickey”/”Luscious” to enthusiastic reviews. Over the past few years, Lane has been immersed in music, playing in a Vermont-based cover band, The Tricksters, and writing and recording original music. His EP, Way of the Water, can be accessed through his website, lanegibsonmusic.com. Lane’s last stage play was Vermont Stage Company’s 2011 production of Photograph 51, where he played the budding scientist, “Raymond Gosling”. Lane trained off and on with Bill for several years.
