The Legacy of Dave Hart
Born Jan. 13, 1959, in Glen Cove, Dave Hart was an artist, actor, director, and teacher. He performed in many national tours and regional theatres from Maine to Seattle, Washington. He first came to the Rock in 2000 as an actor playing Julian Marsh in 42nd Street and went on to play Jud Fry in Oklahoma, Dickinson in 1776, Emile de Becque in South Pacific, Jonathan in Arsenic and Old Lace, and Abel Frake in State Fair.
Dave started teaching full time at the Playhouse in 2008. He directed numerous Studio 52 (formerly YouTheatre) productions. We honor his memory and his legacy of commitment to theatre arts education for anyone who wants it through the Dave Hart Scholarship Fund.
