Dan Beckmann, a self-proclaimed “tall guy” out of Burnsville, Minnesota and is so excited to be back in Kearney for Crane River Theater’s production of Elf! Audiences may remember his as Shrek in Shrek the Musical, Harold Hill in The Music Man, and Snoopy in Snoopy. Dan has since toured the country and world in national tours and cruise ship entertainment lounges alike. He currently travels the country performing with USO-style tap-dancing Duo “Letters From Home” and is the Artistic Director of Spring Theatre in Winston-Salem North Carolina. When he’s not on stage, he can likely be found behind a camera causing all sorts of mischief, and today marks the fifteenth day in a row in which he successfully wore pants. He wouldn’t be where he is today without the constant love and support from his family — love to Mom, Dad, Laura and Erinn.
