Who am I? I ask myself that same question...
Da’Merius, although native to Detroit, MI, was an Army brat. He grew up in three different states; Texas, Michigan and Kansas. He enjoys practicing piano and guitar and composing music of his own. He is also a philosophy and psychology enthusiast. For him, crying and laughing go hand in hand and he believes that that not only keeps him going, but it keeps show business lively.
He received his training from Wichita State University (WSU), earning a BFA in Musical Theatre. He has had the opportunity to have masterclasses with Andrew Lippa, Jeff Whitting, and James Gray. He has also worked under the direction of Roundabout Theatre Company's, Stephen Kopel.
His most recent roles include Jesus in GODSPELL, Ali Hakim in OKLAHOMA, and Victor in SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE, for which he received a Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival National Award for Distinguished Performance by an Actor in a Musical. He was also invited to attend the Kennedy Center American College National Theater Festival 48 for his performance of “The Bus” from CAROLINE OR CHANGE under the founding group of Musical Theatre Fellows at the Festival.
