Bill Daugherty

Having come from a show biz family, I fell into performing naturally and by the time I was 13, I had organized my own theater troupe.  While attending college, I did jingle singing and singing telegrams, worked at Six Flags Over Mid-America and did shows for The Young Americans.  After college I did dinner theaters up and down the East coast, worked in Philly for a year and eventually moved to NYC in 1984.  I earned my Equity card having worked for LOOM at The Cherry Lane Theater, and doing four shows at The Paper Mill Playhouse.  I was part of a musical comedy duo called Daugherty & Field, and we played theaters and concert halls around the world until 1994.  After touring Europe in 1996-1997, in the first international tour of Guys And Dolls, I began teaching private voice at CAP21, and eventually, Vocal Technique, Performance and Audition Rep.  I was a pioneer director for Bravo's, "Camp Broadway", and helped develop a local outreach program , "Curtain Up!".  I've directed shows at CAP and in London, in addition to several original Off-Broadway musicals with my production company, Thoroughbred.  I'm the recipient of five MAC awards and two Bistros, and my first solo album garnered a Nightlife Award.  I've produced a number of recordings, and am a respected music archivist and writer.  I am currently in development of a new musical in association with CAP21's New Works Department.
