BRANDON CONTRERAS (Hector) Brandon is thrilled and honored to be joining the 2015/16 Season at Artists Repertory Theatre! Last time he was in Portland, he was seen performing with the first National Tour of In the Heights and in doing so, always hoped to return. A New York native, Brandon was most recently seen as “Bernardo” in Westchester Broadway Theatre’s West Side Story. Prior to that, he finished a two month sit-down in Las Vegas, NV with The 2015 National Agency Convention with Jason Robert Brown, Joey Pizzi and Andy Beu. Some of his favorite New York credits include: Our Town (Actor’s Fund Benefit), Our Lady of 121st Street (Theatre Row), See What I Want to See (Studio 51), and The Public Theatre’s first reading of Hamilton. Brandon is a graduate of Pace University with a BFA in Musical Theatre and a Minor in Dance. A huge thank-you to his incredible family for making his dreams a reality, and to Wolf Talent Group for their endless support. He is a proud member of Actors’ Equity Association.
