THE KID

 JOHN BRODSKY

JOHN BRODSKY

JOHN BRODSKY was born in Montclair NJ and raised in Rumson NJ. After singing most of his life in competitions, choirs, and bands John found that his musical talents could only take him so far. Not to be discouraged, a fellow band mate introduced him to an acting teacher and John was hooked. After studying in New Jersey on and off for a couple of years, John decided to leave college behind and pursue acting full time professionally in New York City.

After only a few short months of auditioning, John landed a co-starring role on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. In addition, John has worked on many short films, with directors ranging from Columbia University to NYU, with two films going to the Cannes Film Festival. Recently he got the chance to work with Tina Fey in the film, Admission directed by Paul Wietz. In addition to acting, John loves networking and collaborating on projects with fellow actors, film makers, and musicians; discussing what it means to be an artist and navigate through “The Business.”

He is looking forward to pursuing more independent film opportunities, and is currently studying with Sean Folster in his Craft Gym Program.

 DION MUCCIACITO

DION MUCCIACITO

DION MUCCIACITO was born in Anchorage, Alaska and raised in Southern California, Dion Mucciacito had to overcome many obstacles before finding his way to acting. His mother, Angela Mucciacito, lost her battle with brain cancer and died at the age of 34 when Dion was only 8. His father, David, a member of the Anchorage Fire Department, was overcome with grief after Angela's death and fell deep into alcoholism. He would ultimately die in a drunk driving accident at the age of 48. Through all of this, Dion's extended family came together to help raise him and his older brother Dominic. With the support of his family he was able to develop his interest in acting while in high school. Although he was an athlete who loved boxing and martial arts, he found the emotional engagement in acting therapeutic and rewarding in ways that sports weren't.

Dion eventually attended the University of California at Santa Barbara where he studied Film. As an undergraduate he took an interest in post colonial theory and found a love for political activism. This married with his interest in theater and lead him to serve as a human rights observer for Zapatista rebel communities in Chiapas Mexico. He eventually would travel to Port Elizabeth, South Africa to teach self empowerment through the arts to township youth directly effected by the AIDS epidemic. After graduating UCSB, Dion continued his development as a performing artist at the Juilliard School. Since graduating, he has performed in many regional theaters, as well as off Broadway theaters. He made his Broadway debut in Clifford Odets' Golden Boy, playing Sam, and a boxer, in 2012.
