I am outgoing, optimistic, empathetic and a cheerleader for all that you are and all that you wish to accomplish. I strongly believe that if theater and/or music excite you - then that's where you belong. Every experience you have as an actor or singer or actor/singer will be of benefit to you, no matter where your interest/passions may take you. Anything you wish to accomplish will take your effort and your attention and it will take time. But, as with all educational pursuits, put your focus on today and tomorrow will take care of itself.
I have performed on Broadway and on National Tour in THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, on tour with MARTIN GUERRE, PIPPIN, and THE LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF NICHOLAS NICKLEBY, and have performed roles at Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago, The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis and the Great Lakes Theater Festival in Cleveland. I also perform in music rooms (cabaret rooms) throughout the US singing a combination of standards and original songs. In regards to my songwriting, I am, primarily, a lyricist and collaborate with a number of composers. As an actor, I have also done over 80 commercials and over 50 print (character modeling) jobs. I will never ask that you 'prove' anything to me. From the beginning, we're going to assume that you're an actor and/or a singer and we are going to explore words, ideas, music and you'll improve by doing.
I am primarily a lyricist. I write songs in the musical theater and folk genres - I have 8 CD's commercially available (individual songs also available on internet music sites under 'D.C. Anderson'), with the most recent CD releases focusing on my song collaborations. We'll discuss your ideas (and experiment with ways to brainstorm ideas) and explore ways for you to develop them as songs.
I am a perpetual student. Of acting. Of singing. I go to the theater as often as possible. It thrills me. I appreciate the performer who is able to let go of all thought of competition and who acts and/or sings for the pure pleasure of sharing ideas and telling stories. We'll approach our work together with the spirit of an explorer - as actors we'll explore plays for monologues/scenes that challenge you - then we'll put them on their feet. We can also discuss your thoughts regarding future training and experience.
I have been singing for over 30 years. I have studied voice for the better part of that time - both as a singer and as an actor. I have appeared on Broadway, in regional theaters - Steppenwolf in Chicago, The Great Lakes Theater Festival in Cleveland, the Guthrie in Minneapolis among them..
