James Ruth

James  portrayed Prince Christopher accordingly with his want for simplicity and his need for Cinderella. When he sang in songs such as “Loneliness of Evening” and “Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful?” he was a open book, showing everything he felt with just a small facial expression. His rich voice serenaded Cinderella in “Ten Minutes Ago,” blossoming a treasured love story.

       Review of R&H Cinderella

"James Ruth delivers a very energetic and heart-felt performance as Harold Hill, he is reminiscent very much of a young Ray Bolger in every way. He allows his character to grow and allows the audience to laugh with and at him and to love him and wish for a happy ending."

       Review of The Music Man

"The most touching moment of the show, however, belongs to the older Ruth and his heart-breaking, knot-your-insides reprise of “My Best Girl,” following the death of Mame’s husband."

      Review of Mame

"While all members of the ensemble are incredibly talented, ...keep your eyes on Hanschen (Taylor Rieland) Ernst (Peyton Lynch) and Georg (James Ruth). These three ...have pristine voices that exude deep emotions, particularly in more somber songs like “The World of Your Body Reprise” and “Touch Me.” Ruth and Rieland are a comic masterpiece."

      Review of Spring Awakening

Another standout is James Ruth as nerdy Johnny. Ruth has spot-on comic timing and a strong voice. I saw Ruth as the starring role in Towson University’s excellent Sweeney Todd this spring, and was pleased to see his versatility in this kids’ show.

          Review of Really Rosie

"Matching his [younger counterpart's] skill and mannerisms (to make the transition from little boy to all grown-up that much easier) is James Ruth as Older Patrick. Ruth assimilates his pitch and gestures to match his younger self with a perfection that convinces the audience that time really has passed and that he really has grown-up into a fine young man."

      Review of Mame

Prince Christopher, played by James Ruth . Through numbers such as “The Sweetest Sound,” Ruth displayed both sensitivity and a sense of hopelessness, as his character wonders if love or happiness really awaits him. His vocal abilities as well as his acting created a prince worthy of sympathy and compassion.
