ARTIST BIOGRAPHY:

Dwight is excited to be having this opportunity to work under the direction of Jack Souza in the role of Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong for the Prospect Theater Project. “Sharing this story of one of the most iconic musicians in history has been an honor.” For this, he dedicates the role in loving memory of Mary L. and Denard C. Parker, the couple who raised him until the age of nine, and were the first to witness him impersonate Louis Armstrong singing Hello Dolly at the age of six, and encouraged him to do it over, and over again, for friends and family. Some of Dwight’s other favorites, include the principal roles he played in RagtimeThe King and IThe Whipping ManLooking over the President’s ShoulderWho’s Afraid of Virginia WoolfMan of La ManchaMuch Ado About Nothing and Chicago. Watch for him in his next role as Old Frederick Douglas in an upcoming PBS docudrama, Abolition for Duende: Drama & Literature being filmed this October. Dwight is a proud member of AEA and SAG_AFTRA. Please feel free to visit www.dwightactor.com.
