David Wright, Show Tune Jam music director/accompanist

David Wright has been performing onstage since he was seven years old, both in school and community theater. He has also enjoyed working backstage as a costume designer (most recently for MIT’s production ofSweeney Todd) and rehearsal accompanist. In 2003, he began Northeastern University’s first student organized musical theater company, which is still producing shows. There, he directed and music directed productions ofEvitaChicagoLittle Shop of Horrors and Into the Woods. Wright’s other passion is special education. Last year, he became the inclusion facilitator at the Ward School in Newton and was awarded by the city’s parent council as a special educator of note. A few years ago, Wright had the distinct pleasure of instructing the children’s choir for the Newton Country Players production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Since that time, he has been seeking opportunities to teach musical theater to elementary students.
