Waterfront Playhouse Debut!  Courtney appeared in the national tour of Stephen Schwartz’s Pippin, where he traveled the country portraying the role of Lewis as well as tackling the title role of Pippin at select performances. He calls NYC home (and yes, he’s thrilled to be trading the snow for the FL sun!), where he’s performed in numerous Off-Broadway productions.   Most recently, he lit up the stage as Lumiere in Disney’s Beauty & The Beast.  Throughout his career, he has traveled to almost 40 countries and 5 continents performing with popular cruise lines like Princess Cruises, Holland America Line, and Celebrity Cruises.  In addition to his onstage work, Courtney enjoys being on-camera as well.  You can catch him on Evil Lives Here on Investigation Discovery and in the upcoming film Aspersion.  He is a graduate of Coker University where he earned a BA in Vocal Performance. Favorite past roles include Seymour Krelborn (Little Shop of Horrors), The Baker (Into The Woods), Huck Finn (Big River) and Link Larkin (Hairspray). @CourtneyDease
