about me!

Hello! And thanks for visiting my website! My name is Jonathan and I'm an actor, singer, and writer based in New York City. Originally from Las Vegas, I just finished being on tour with The Book of Mormon, but before tour, San Diego was home. 
I have worked regionally in San Diego at The Old Globe, Cygnet Theatre Company and San Diego Musical Theatre, and in the LA area with Musical Theatre West, 3D Theatricals and McCoy Rigby Entertainment.
I have been a performer at a local San Diego theme park, having brought to life some of their most beloved characters, and have also hosted numerous cabarets and shows in the San Diego area.
When not on stage, I have been writing a new musical called "boy" which has had workshops in both San Diego and Seattle. And of course, being a dog dad to Artie "Artichoke" the pug!
Most recently, I was an Elder Cunningham standby in the National Tour of The Book of Mormon!

The Book of

"As Elder Cunningham, standby Jonathan Sangster... delivers an exceptional performance of this nerdy slacker... Sangster adds plenty of original, humorous touches to his portrayal that makes his character goofy but lovable. He has great stage presence and throws himself into the role with a boundless energy."

- Gil Benbrook

Young Frankenstein

"Perhaps best capturing Brooks' tongue-in-cheek nature is Jonathan Sangster... He gets some of the best new material from Brooks and Meehan, and handles their clever lines with energetic and comedic skill."

- David Dixon

San Diego Story


“Jonathan Sangster is dryly amusing as the aptly named Patsy, Arthur’s long-suffering valet”

-James Hebert

San Diego Union Tribune

The Full Monty

“In the hands of Jonathan Sangster, a strong singer and actor, Malcolm is more open with his emotions and his affections, in keeping with today’s times.”
