Tyler Buswell


Tyler is a proud local drag queen (Donatella Nobody), actor, designer, and educator. He is beyond excited to make his PCS design debut with this production after working as a scenic painter/carpenter on many PCS shows including Astoria, Little Shop of Horrors, and In The Heights. He has ten BroadwayWorld Portland Award nominations for best scenic design, winning for Bootycandy with Fuse Ensemble and runner-up for Camelot with Lakewood Theatre. His work was recently seen in the Ellen Bye Studio with ART’s Rolling World Premier of American Fast by Kareem Fahmy. Other companies he has designed for include Portland Opera, Theatre Vertigo, Bag&Baggage, 21Ten, Corrib, Pride Northwest, Renegade Opera and many more! He currently teaches tech theatre and costume design to an exceptionally talented group of middle and high schoolers at Northwest Academy who inspire him daily. He would like to thank his amazing husband, David Saffert, for his part in creating this fabulous show!
