David Budden, Baritone
David is featured as “Francesco’ in The Gondoliers
David has sung in choirs for as long as he can remember. He caught the theatre ‘bug’ when he was cast as “Pish-Tush” in The Mikado during his high school years.
For many years he lived in denial, pretending to pursue a career as a high school Science teacher, trying to hide his particular affinity for Gilbert and Sullivan. In the meantime, David has worked behind the scenes on many productions for the school he teaches at including Beauty and The Beast, The Pirates of Penzance and Les Misérables.
Finally done with living vicariously through his students, David has returned to the stage, vowing to become famous before his students do!
