Your Broadway Buddy, Ben Cameron, has always been a little bit different. Ben shares his hilarious stories and insights from growing up a theatre-obsessed pre-teen in Utah. Yes, Utah, where different didn’t quite fit in so good, to the bright lights of Broadway where he learned just HOW good different can be! Ben’s here to celebrate the theatre kid in all of us!

The AACTFest 2023 Keynote, "Different is Good,"  is being sponsored in part by Broadway Plus. The keynote is open to AACTFest 2023 registrants only.

Ben Cameron appeared in the original casts of Wicked and Footloose, as well in Aida, plus tours of Sweet Charity (opposite Molly Ringwald), State Fair, Fame, The Who’s Tommy, and Footloose.

Since hanging up his dance belt he has become one of Broadway’s most beloved personalities as creator and host of the long-running variety show Broadway Sessions (2018 MAC Award), the Broadway Buskers concert series with the Times Square Alliance, the web series Dance Captain Dance Attack on BroadwayWorld.com, and the hit podcast, The Broadway Cast with IHeartRadio Broadway. Cameron is also the MainStage host for BroadwayCon and was live-audience host for tapings of both A Very Wicked Halloween on NBC and The Spongebob Musical on Nickelodeon. He is a frequent face on PBS WNET, having hosted Hamilton’s America, Broadway on Thirteen Marathon, and the Downton Abbey New Year’s Marathon.

He recently made his return to the stage as the “Man in Chair” in The Drowsy Chaperone and starred as “Mr. Finch” in Broadway Green Alliance’s online presentation of You’re a Green One, Mr. Finch alongside Idina Menzel. He has enjoyed sold-out engagements of his one-man show, Different Is Good, in New York City and beyond.

Cameron is also a sought-after writer, director, performer, and choreographer, who travels the world, teaching high-energy theatre and dance masterclasses, and emceeing Onstage NY talent competitions. His keynote will draw on his remarkable career, observations and insight, making for an entertaining and eye-opening experience.
