Daniel Z. Miller is a performing artist and composer with a BFA in Musical Theatre and a AA in Music from Texas State University. He has been seen in numerous roles and workshops throughout his highschool and college career, and some of his favorite roles include Marius (Les Mis) a Disciple (Godspell), Father (Ragtime), and Quasimodo (The Hunchback of Notre Dame). He is eager to tackle any type of music, whether legit or contemporary, and his quick learning ability and sight-singing lend themselves to workshops and readings of new pieces as well.
Daniel started composing at the age of fifteen, and since then he has presented a concert of his work at Lonestar College, had two of his symphonic works premiered by the Austin Symphony as part of the Sarah and Ernest Butler Texas Young Composers Competition, and his new musical Dylan Spencer’s Cat Obedience School (commissioned by the Texas State department of Theatre and Dance) was the recent recipient of the 2019 Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival’s Michael Kanin Playwrighting Award for best new musical. He also enjoys working with vocal and choral arrangements.
Daniel also loves teaching, and has spent many summers teaching kids ages 10-18 how to sing, act and dance. He is passionate about spreading the joy of theatre to others, and enjoys any chance he gets to do so through teaching performing arts skills.
