Daniel C. Dennis is very pleased to bring professional theater to Dublin, to deepen central Ohio’s engagement with the issues, challenges, and celebrations of our times through the performing arts, and to offer opportunities for young theater artists to apprentice with working professionals and take the important next step into the field. Directing credits include Tantrum’s inaugural show Little Shop of Horrors, Urinetown the Musical and bobrauschenbergamerica for Ohio University, Into the Woods and Oliver! for Ohio Valley Summer Theater, A Child’s Christmas in Wales for Book-It Repertory Theatre, and other new works in development. As an actor, he has worked for such companies as Seattle Children’s Theatre, Intiman Theatre, Seattle Opera, Village Theatre, Seattle Shakespeare Company, Book-It Repertory Theatre, UMO Ensemble, and others. He has music directed and conducted such classics as Singin’ in the Rain, A Funny Thing… Forum, and The Mystery of Edwin Drood and has led casts to perform his original sound scores for dozens of productions, including adaptations of Shakespeare, Gilbert & Sullivan, E.M. Forster, and Edith Wharton. With his show STARBALL—an interactive, largely improvised music theater event for the planetarium developed with collaborator John Kaufmann—he has performed in New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Baton Rouge, and Valencia, Spain. Mr. Dennis belongs to Southeast Ohio’s Brick Monkey Theater Ensemble and Actors’ Equity Association. Holding an MFA in Theatre Pedagogy from Virginia Commonwealth University and a PhD in Interdisciplinary Arts from Ohio University, he currently serves on the performance faculty in the Theater Division at Ohio University, where he teaches acting, speaking, singing, Suzuki, Viewpoints, and theater composition.
