Dylan Zucati (Tommy)
Dylan is thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful cast. He’s already played two Tommy’s in the past (Music Man Project, 5th Avenue Theatre; Tommy, Burien Little Theatre) so he feels that by the name alone, he’s very suited for this role. Some of his other past roles have included Jason in Rabbit Hole (Theater Verity), Willard in Footloose (Auburn Community Players), and Hansy in Spring Awakening (Local Jewel Theater). He’s not certain what show will be coming next but whatever it is he knows it’ll be a blast. Dylan is currently a freshman at Seattle University studying Theater and Creative Writing. He’d like to thank his family and friends for being such great supporters for his art and dealing with the drama that comes with theater. Enjoy the show and DFTBA.
