Josh Aaron McCabe joined Wright State University’s Department of Theatre, Dance, & Motion Pictures in 2016 to teach various courses in Acting (specializing in Shakespeare).  He received his M.F.A. in Acting from The University of Wisconsin-Madison and his B.F.A. and B.A. from Ohio University.

Josh has been a core member of the nationally acclaimed Shakespeare & Company in The Berkshires, MA since 2006 where he is an AEA actor and Senior Education Artist.

Previous to joining WSU, Josh served as the Director of Shakespeare & Company’s Shakespeare in the Courts Program (a Presidential award-winning Program previously celebrated at a White House ceremony in 2007) that works with adjudicated teenagers who have been "Sentenced to Shakespeare" by a judge, culminating in a final performance of Shakespeare as a part of their probation.

Although his many roles at Shakespeare & Company often involve physical comedy (including the American Premiere of The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Complete Works of Shakespeare- Abridged, The Mystery of Irma Vep, The 39 Steps, The Real Inspector Hound), a couple of his other memorable roles there were playing Olympia Dukakis's son, Eilif, in Mother Courage and Her Children, as well as Stephano and Alonso in The Tempest for the inaugural performance of Shakespeare & Company’s new outdoor Roman Garden Theatre in 2017.

Other performances at Regional Theatres include: Berkshire Theatre Festival, Oldcastle Theatre of Vermont, Connecticut Rep, Forward Theatre, Milwaukee’s Chamber Theatre, Renaissance Theatre of Milwaukee, Madison Rep and Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati.
