Called one of Dallas’ leading men of choice by the Dallas Morning News, John Campione is a classically trained actor, singer, musician and a native Texan, based in New York City. He has been featured in a large variety of roles including Michael in the national tour of The Bridges of Madison County, Gator in the Rose Hemingway helmed premier production of Moonshine: That Hee Haw Musical, Enjolras in the critically acclaimed production of Les Miserables with the Dallas Theater Center (Column Award nomination), Clyde Barrow in Bonnie and Clyde (Column Award nomination), Valentine in Kiss of the Spider Woman (2013 best actor nod from D Magazine; Column Award nomination) and various other titles including The Normal Heart, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Dog Sees God, Songs for a New World, Hello Again, Titanic, the Musical, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, and West Side Story.
An award winning pianist and vocalist, he began his training with Dale Dietert and Hank Hammett at Southern Methodist University where he received two bachelors’ degrees in music. After realizing many 12 year olds could play circles around him on the keys and that opera just wasn’t his forte he attended SpringboardNYC, the American Theatre Wing’s pre-professional program for young actors, The William Esper Studio, and has worked in master class with the likes of Seth Rudetsky, Jerry Zaks, Randy Lutterman, David Caparelliotis, Jake Heggie, John Ruocco, Carl Forsman and Nathan Gunn. He has performed live with Josh Groban, on air with Kidd Kraddick in the Morning, live on Good Morning Texas, WFAA Daybreak, and for Coca-Cola at the State Fair of Texas.
Whenever he can scrape together any spare time he enjoys playing his guitar, piano, banjo, or anything else he feels might inspire. John is also an amateur obstacle course athlete and lover of all physical challenges. Who knows what he'll tackle next.
