Dan Denton hails from Topeka, KS where he is routinely involved in theatre productions.  You may recognize Dan from last year playing the roles of Jimmy in Hank Williams: Lost Highway, Jinx in Forever Plaid, and Chip in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee here at the Post Playhouse.  Dan is proud to have finished his first production working as the music director for [Title of Show] this past year, and couldn’t be happier than to have had that opportunity.  Most recently, he played Frank Sinatra in the new musical The Rat Pack Lounge.  Dan hopes audiences are just as excited for these summer productions as he is!
