Dave DiMarino (Also Music Director)
Dave came to the theatre many years ago through the stream of music performance. A 1992 graduate of West Chester University with a degree in music education, he has spent most of his life teaching, directing, and performing vocal/choral and instrumental music in schools, churches, and theatrical venues. Much of his theatre performance experience has been in church settings, performing lead roles such as John the Baptist in One Voice and Moses in Moses and the Burning Within. As lover of Broadway reviews, and having done A Grand Night for Singing in 1999, Dave is excited to be reliving the great music of Rodgers & Hammerstein once again in this production.
