Dave Register Graduated from Columbia University

Hailing from Cape Elizabeth, Maine, Dave Register graduated from Columbia University School of the Arts in the 2015 Acting Class.

Columbia claims the program provides grads with the tools needed for theater and on-screen roles, and since graduating, Register has credits in both mediums. 

However, going to school in New York proved to be a learning experience for the actor in more ways than one.

In a video for the university, he recalled "falling prey to a number of street hustlers" and being fully confident that "I'm gonna win" but "would lose every time."

Dave Made His Broadway Debut in Harry Potter

The mission was to safely bring back live entertainment amidst the pandemic, focusing on small casts and outdoor venues. The festival has run for three consecutive seasons.

In discussing Sanctuary City, one of the festival's plays with the Press Herald, Register explained his interest in "providing a little more nuance" to the timely immigration conversation "in Portland:"

“I wanted to do a play that in its own way contributes and plays a small part in providing a little more nuance to the conversation around immigration in Portland. I wanted the immigrant experience to be represented on stage.”
