Born and bred in New Orleans, Louisiana, Daniel Rigamer's love for the theatrical world started very young when he first landed roles in community theatre as Winthrop in The Music Man, Pinocchio in Pinocchio and Mowgli in The Jungle Book.
His studies in the performing arts began in the summer after Hurricane Katrina when he enrolled as a Musical Theatre student at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts just as they reclaimed their riverfront campus. After four years of intense theatrical work on the Mississippi River he was offered a spot in the Musical Theatre program at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre with a minor in Dance. Some of his favorite roles include Bun Foo in Thoroughly Modern Millie, Toby in 110 in the Shade, and the ensemble in The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
When he's not performing or honing his craft, Daniel enjoys costume construction, swing dancing, and playing his grandfather's accordion.
