Daniel Munson headshotThank you for stopping in and taking the moment to read a little about me.

I am a theatre professional, working in many different areas of theatre.  This past spring of 2012, I was named Artistic Director of Theatre du Mississippi in Winona, MN.  I am also cuurrently the Production Manager for the Great River Shakespeare Festival in Winona, MN.  This is both a part-time and a full-time job (full-time hours, part-time pay).  I am also an Adjunct Professor of Theatre for both Winona State University and Saint Mary’s University in Winona, MN.

I am a playwright (which is probably why you’re here) and author of other types of writing as well.  I greatly enjoy writing for younger audiences.  I have a separate web site for my plays targeted at high school (and younger) audiences — dkmunson.com.  I’ve had to list them separately so that they could be included in search sites that filter out some web sites for schools.

A member of Actor’s Equity Association, I have acted on stage, but prefer the backstage.  I have stage managed on Broadway, Off-Broadway, at the Kennedy Center, the Pasadena Playhouse, and numerous theatre across the country.

When not working in theatre, I do a lot of volunteering in my local community.  I am the President of the Board of Directors for a local library, and am the Chairman of a local school’s Board of Education.

Thank you for stopping in, and I hope you enjoy the reading material you find here.

  1. Dan,
    I am so pleased to see what your life has become- so rich and diverse. I had no idea how many artistic hats you were wearing and was pleased to look around at your blog! Do let me know if you ever venture to LA!
