Collection Overview

Biography / History
Kevin Dearinger earned his bachelor's degree in English from the University of Kentucky in 1973. While at UK, he began his acting career on the stage of UK's Guignol Theatre, starring in a production of George Bernard Shaw's Androcles and the Lion. Dearinger performed on Broadway and participated in numerous national and international tours. Dearinger has performed on the stages of many prestigious regional theatre companies, including Goodspeed Opera, The Huntington, and Paper Mill Playhouse. He is a member of both the Actors' Equity Association and the Screen Actors Guild.
Upon retirement, Dearinger wrote The Bard in the Bluegrass: Two Centuries of Shakespearean Performance in Lexington, Kentucky (2007). During his research, he acquired much of the material that forms the John Arthur Dearinger Memorial Theatre Collection, dedicated to the memory of his father, John Arthur Dearinger. John Arthur Dearinger was a faculty member in the University of Kentucky College of Engineering from 1957 until 1991.
