Hello there! I'm Daniel James Roth. I'm an Actor, Stage Combatant, Director, Playwright, and Shakespeare enthusiast. Get to know me, my work, and my passions on this website!
Updates and exciting news!
For the summer I will return to The Lost Colony in the role of Ananias Dare, as well as working as the assistant special effects coordinator. The show runs from May 29th to August 21st in Manteo, NC.
This spring I am acting as the Assistant Fight Choreographer for Elon University's production of Hamlet. At the same time I will be performing as a featured fighter in the North Carolina Ballet's production of Macbeth from April 16th - April 19th. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 the production of "Hamlet" has been cancelled.
I lead a table-read of an original play I wrote titled The Tragedy of King Arthur with members of the company of The Lost Colony. It was a huge success, and thanks to feedback from actors and audience members, I've begun re-editing the play before I submit it to festivals around the country.
I had the privilege of taking part in a production of As You Like It as part of the workshop series at The Lost Colony. I directed the production, on top of playing the part of Oliver. The show was a Bare Bard concept, with 20 hours of rehearsal, minimal props and no scenery, some improvisation, and a ton of audience inclusion.
