Patrick Rossi is incredibly excited to be making his community theatre musical debut with Dominion Stage. Having primarily only acted in straight plays throughout his life, he was ecstatic to have been cast in Spring Awakening.

“There are three shows on my “actor bucket-list”: Rent, Hair, and Spring Awakening. One down two to go!”

Being raised in an Italian Catholic household he was asked why this controversial show was on his “bucket-list”.

“Yes, the show definitely handles some very controversial issues such as homosexuality, rape, abortion, teenage sex, and suicide, but these are incredibly important issues that are still immensely relevant today. I never had a “talk” about any of these issues with my family until I was in my late teens and brought up the topics myself. I want this show to open up dialogue between kids and their parents, regardless of what side of these issues they fall on, because sometimes a simple talk can be the difference between life and death, as this play clearly shows.”

Some of Patrick’s past credits include: Trissotin in “The Learned Ladies”, Sebastian in “On the Lam”, and Ed Carmichael in “You Can’t Take it With You” to name a few.
