Wagner College Theatre Alumni Matt Ban will be playing the role of Dennis DuPree in ROCK OF AGES on Broadway for a limited run from October 31st-November 9th (night show only on the 9th). Ban toured with the show for over a year, and also recently performed the role on the inaugural cruises of the Norwegian Breakaway out of NYC.
"I would say that Wagner gave me the opportunity to find my true self as an actor, and feel comfortable stretching myself to the limit. I owe a lot to the faculty of the Wagner College Theatre Program for their unending support of their students. My hope is that future WCT students will look at the successes of the alumni and feel driven to reach those heights. I know that's exactly how I felt. Not to mention, without Wagner I would never have found my best friend and love of my life who I will be marrying in a few short months (Erin O'Neil '08)." -Matt Ban
