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!
From May 30th to August 23rd I will be performing in The Lost Colony, an outdoor historical drama in North Carolina. The show is a dramatic telling of the history of the colony of Roanoke, and the colonists who mysteriously disappeared. I will be playing the role of Ananias Dare, father to the first English child born in the New World.
I completed my internship at Orlando Shakes in the final production of their 30th season, Richard II. With an adapted script by Jim Helsinger and Eleanor Holdridge (who also directed the production), I played the roles of Bushy, Fitzwater, Scroope, and Willoughby, as well as other ensemble roles. I was also the Fight Captain for the production.
I recently finished a run of Hamlet at Orlando Shakes, directed by Brian Vaughn. The show ran in repertory with the world-premiere of Gertrude and Claudius by Mark St. Germain. I appeared in Hamlet as the Second Gravedigger, Reynaldo, and a Player, and performed duties as one of the Fight Captains for the production.
In November of 2018 I joined the EMC program through my internship at Orlando Shakes.
