I'm Dominic Pagliaro, an actor, singer, dancer, and composer/lyricist. currently located in the Greater NYC area.
Born in Baltimore, Maryland, I've sung and performed for as long as I can remember. I recently graduated from Indiana University with a BFA in Musical Theatre, an Independent Minor in Musical Theatre Composition, and with Highest Distinction.
I've been onstage in musicals, plays, and cabarets throughout my career. In addition, I have experience "behind the scenes" through my employment at IU Theatre's Scenic Studio (undergraduate carpenter, 2017-2020) and with my involvement in The University Players, IU's student-run theatre company (Assistant Technical Director, 2017-19, and Technical Director 2019-20).
When I'm not doing something theatre-related, you'll find me cooking, reading, writing music, watching hockey (Go Leafs Go!), or playing video games. I also work as a professional Bartender, Bar Manager, and Independent Contractor.
Spending four years at Indiana University pursuing a BFA in Musical Theatre was one of the best decisions of my life. Even though my time - and every class of 2020's - was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic, those four years will hold a special place in my heart. I grew as both an artist and an individual during my time at school, and could not be more proud to call myself a Hoosier!
Some highlights from my time at IU:
Performed in 6 IU Productions and 11 Regional Theatre and Summerstock Productions
Assistant Directed and Directed workshops of New Musicals
Spent 3 years building sets as an undergraduate carpenter at the IU Scenic Studio.
Served as the Assistant Technical Director for University Players, IU's Student-Run Theatre Company, from 2017-19, and as Technical Director for 2019-20

Composed the book, music, and lyrics for a One-Act Musical
