    as Harold Hill

    – David has been a fan of “The Music Man” since the time he played “Winthrop” at the age of 10. Now, a little “sadder but wiser,” he is happy to return as one of American theatre’s favorite con artists. (Speaking of which, Pocket Theatre patrons will remember David in his recent role as “Billy Flynn” in “Chicago.”) David’s favorite role is “Sr. Pastor” at Grand Avenue United Methodist Church, where he appears weekly at 8:30 and 10:45. David and his wife, Karla are avid supporters of the arts and find participating in theatre a great way to build community.
