Hi, there! It’s Nate Buursma,                  with two u’s . . . it’s Dutch!


I hail originally from the great state of Michigan, and being the middle child, I naturally fell into everything dramatic. I had the privilege of training at Butler University and Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia. After college, I traveled and worked in several theatres in Virginia, Arkansas, and upstate New York, until I settled in the amazing city of Chicago.

Work that I find inspiring includes inclusive theatre, theatre and disability, anything physical theatre, voiceover of any kind, Shakespeare, and PUPPETS. When I’m not performing, I enjoy working out, cooking, teaching theatre to individuals with disabilities, and working as a standardized patient for medical schools.
