Dan Cerullo - Theatre Arts (Middle and High School)
Dan Cerullo is so excited to be part of the Firebird Family! He is originally from Little Egg Harbor New Jersey. He attended Stockton University on a full merit scholarship and received his Bachelor’s degree in theatre, graduating magna cum laude with program distinction. While attending university he performed and competed at the American College Theatre Festival, was an Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship nominee, and was selected as a student director for the Main Stage season. He also performed in a production of Ajax, which toured throughout Greece. Throughout his time at college he was able to act in, design, stage manage and direct various productions.
One month after graduation he moved to Chicago Illinois to experience all facets of theatre. He was accepted into Second City’s Conservatory program, where he studied improvisation under instructors that have taught the likes of Steve Carrell, Tina Fey, and Steven Colbert. He also had the opportunity to perform and direct with various theatres in the city.
Dan could not be happier to be given the opportunity to share his experiences with the students of Falls Lake Academy. He recently moved to the Butner/Creedmoor area with his beautiful wife Logan. The two of them are very excited for this new adventure!
