Professor Sutton mainly teaches courses in composition, humanities, and occasionally literature.

Research Interests: His research interests include composition, especially research-based writing and literature, and he publishes in both of these areas.

Recent Publications: In May and June of 2013, Venture Theatre of De Pere staged two one-acts of Dr. Sutton's as a double bill for two weekends. They were "Running Mates" (comedy, not a musical) and "Can I Buy You a Drink?" (a music revue—that is, a series of songs with sketches between, as opposed to a "book musical" with a plot from beginning to end). The director, cast and crew received a favorable review in the Green Bay Press-Gazette, and aided by that review and favorable word of mouth, the final performance was a sellout!

In July 2013, Dr. Sutton's full-length musical (regular "book musical," not a music revue) Searching for Romeo had four performances in the Jean Weidner Theatre.

"We sold out all four performances, received standing ovations at two of them, and received a favorable review in the Green Bay Press-Gazette. On the Monday after the final performance, the house manager of the Weidner Center contacted me and asked that I try to bring the play back for another weekend, because a number of customers on leaving the theatre had expressed interest in seeing it again, and also because after the opening, a number of people had tried to buy tickets based on word of mouth and expressed disappointment that the remaining performances were already sold out. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to reassemble the cast, since a couple of key cast members moved away the week after the run."
