Continuing our conversation, we asked PigPen Theatre Company performer Ben Ferguson a few questions and here’s what he shared with us…

Writers Theatre: If each of the members of PigPen Theatre Co. had a job title, what would yours be?
Ben Ferguson: King.

Ben-Ferguson_banjo WT: What’s your favorite myth, folktale, or fairytale?
Ben: Anything by Roald Dahl. Anything. 

WT: If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you need?Ben_Ferguson_guitar_2
Ben: A fully furnished home, a butler/chef/maid who also happens to be my best friend, and a good book I guess?

WT: If you could have a conversation with anyone – living or dead – who would it be and why?
Ben: Depends. If I pick someone dead, are they a zombie? Cause if so, I pick zombie George Washington.

WT: Who is your favorite PigPen Theatre Co. member?
Ben: Selfishly I have to say me. But that’s only to make Curtis jealous. He thinks he’s all that, with his super cute smile and thick head of hair and his chiseled jaw and perfect skin…
[Note: You’ll get to know Curtis in next week’s Cast Q&A… ]
