Who: John Campione

From: Born in Dallas, Texas

Education: Southern Methodist University's Meadows School of the Arts, with two Bachelor of Music degrees in vocal performance and music education. He was pursuing a career in opera. "But I kept feeling pulled back into theater, into the magic," he says. "I stepped out on faith and followed that, I had supportive teachers at SMU who agreed with my assessment of myself."

Day job: Project manager for an interior designer in Westlake; also serves as assistant music director at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Dallas.

2012 roles includeKismet and The Most Happy Fella at Lyric Stage, Dog Sees God at Denton Community Theatre, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson at Theatre Three and Hello Again at Uptown Players.

Currently in: Putting It Together at WaterTower Theatre, closing Feb. 3, 2013. He plays one of five characters in the Sondheim revue/review/"revuesical," performing the "Invocation and the Instructions to the Audience" from The Frogs, "Buddy's Blues" from Follies and "Bang!," which was a song cut from A Little Night Music.

What's next: Barrett in Titanic the Musical by the J Players at the Jewish Community Center, directed by Linda Leonard, in February; and in April, he'll be Manuelito in Lyric Stage's revival of the Rodgers and Hart show Too Many Girls, with a full orchestra.

Want to know more? In this video interview, he talks about his love for Sondheim, performing in Putting It Together and working for the first time with director Terry Martin.
