Dan is a current sophomore pursing a B.F.A. in musical theatre. His love for theatre began at a young age when his mom asked him to audition for a summer production of Beauty and the Beast, and the rest is history.
Dan had the privilege of being apart of regional theatre during his middle school years at the Paramount Theatre in Aurora, IL. He was cast in the Children’s Chorus in the musical Joseph…Dreamcoat directed by Stacy Flaster. The following season, he was cast in the ensemble as well the understudy for Winthrop in The Music Man directed by the late Rachel Rockwell.
In 2017, Dan was cast in the Illinois High School All State Production of Sweeney Todd (Tobias). He, along with 35 other high school students from Illinois, performed in front of thousands of thespians from all across the state. Through this opportunity he made lifelong friendships and grew tremendously as a performer.
