With years of musical training, Jaeger Johnson has worked as both cast and crew in several shows. His debut acting role was in 2015 for his ensemble role in high school musical Zombie Prom. His first introduction to crew was in 2019 for his work as an assistant set designer for the musical Working, under Hafsa Abdi. He is currently working as assistant scenic designer for the Yale Spring 2020 Mainstage: The Clean House, under Jessie Chen. Jaeger has been musically trained by the directors of the St. Thomas More Chapel at Yale and by Yale School of Music performers, on both vocal and instrumental music. He frequently cantors at St. Thomas More, usually every few weeks for two or more masses. Jaeger plays the clarinet and has been playing since 2011. He is learning Latin, in preparation for the hard Latin pieces every choir member must sing (Mozart’s Requiem is at the top of the list). Jaeger is studying chemistry, applying to veterinary schools to work on wildlife health, and possibly attending graduate school for ecology and evolutionary biology to understand more about population dynamics, infectious disease, and structural colors. Jaeger looks forward to his first performance in a musical at Yale, and looks further to performing on Broadway!
