Ezra Bartsch is a writer based in the Twin Cities. Growing up in Hortonville, Wisconsin, Ezra moved to Saint Paul to study Composition at McNally Smith College of Music and has a degree from Minneapolis Community Technical College with a combined area of study in musical theater. His focus on children's entertainment and edification is founded on quality of craft, positivity, personal reflection, and societal growth. It manifests in lyrics, scripts, and custom-built, Muppet-style puppets (see more at the Studio Uus Instagram). Ezra's work can be found in productions like Bear & the Barrel, The Veggie Adventures, The Oliver Holiday series, and a trilogy of 10-minute plays about navigating race issues in America.
