Willie Dee is very happy to be back on the road and teaching with Broadway Connection! His Broadway Connection journey started in 2012 with the SHREK National Tour. Originally from Dallas, TX, Willie Dee moved to NYC in 2009 after graduating from Sam Houston State University.
He has toured numerous musicals across North America such as HAIRSPRAY (Thad), A CHORUS LINE (Richie), ANYTHING GOES (Sailor u/s Purser) and also internationally on the SHREK Tour (Papa Bear u/s Donkey). He is thrilled to be the Male Swing in the North American premiere of THE BODYGUARD musical featuring Deborah Cox!
Other favorite Regional credits include: Ogunquit Playhouse (NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT), PaperMill Playhouse (HAIRSPRAY), Flat Rock Playhouse (CATS), Gateway Playhouse (HAIRSPRAY), and McCarter Theatre Center (A CHRISTMAS CAROL).
The vocal workshop was the best vocal workshop we have had yet. His method with the kids was wonderful. It was great to hear him play piano and sing. He broke up the music so every girl had a part to sing. When they were nervous to sing alone, he gave them the pep talk they needed. The end result was beautiful and I think that was totally effective.” - T. Mangiaratti
