Joshua’s current news

Park Square Generals 2019


Hello! My name is Josh Palmer (Joshua Zapata-Palmer). I love falling up the stairs, running into walls, playing the ukulele until I forget what time it is, and dancing in my car at stop lights.

In my artistic life, I consider myself a creator of enthusiastic, collaborative, and playful theater and media arts as an actor, writer, teacher, and director. My favorite theatre credits include Motel (Fiddler on the Roof), Frizbee (Step on a Crack), and Clive (See How They Run). My favorite film credits include Bear (Orange Lighting Media), The Paper Jam (Bethel University), and Light Force (Eaglebrooke Church). 

I'm currently directing an original One Act with Farmington High School alongside Benjamin Domask called Click Here to Read More and regularly performing with the Clown Cabaret!
