Eric Niece was raised in the small town of Maysville, Missouri. After graduating from high school, he earned his bachelor’s degree in theatre performance from Northwest Missouri State University. Since graduating, Eric has worked as a professional actor in several theaters in Missouri, Nebraska, Minnesota, and finally Michigan. After moving to the Detroit area, he began working with Uncovered Theatre Company where he was asked to be the technical director. That work as TD led him to his job at RC.  Eric is now pursuing his master’s degree from Regent University. He currently lives in Warren, Michigan, and will be married to his lovely fiancée, Hannah, this December.
