Ephraim Walker

Ephraim Claude-Joseph Walker was born in San Antonio, Texas and raised in Los Angeles, California. While growing up in California, Ephraim spent much of his spare time in the church and became a youth minister at the tender age of 12. Later, Ephraim developed an interest in the arts, becoming one of the first male students to be accepted into Debbie Allen’s Dance Academy. He made his theatrical debut in the original production of "You Don’t Know Me," written and directed by Mark E. Swinton and produced by Bruce Willis and Cedric The Entertainer. Shortly after, he also found himself working in the world of fashion as an assistant to Chaz E. Foley.
Fueled by his accomplishments as a young adult, Ephraim made the move to New York City to pursue a career in Musical Theatre. Throughout his extensive stay in New York he was able to grasp a better understanding of himself and the person he had become. Ephraim believes that when faced with difficult obstacles one can overcome anything with faith and determination, and accomplish great things through perseverance, strong communication skills and by helping out his fellow man. He is now excited to venture into the world of writing with Broadway Black in hopes of broadening his horizons and bringing a new perspective to theatre.
