Dave Corey is a proud member of Actors' Equity and is ecstatic to be back with City Theatre and Winter Shorts! Last year was a hoot that made the holidays extra special and he’s blessed to be back with an incredibly talented cast and crew! While Dave is officially retired from broadcasting, he has kept busy with a Hawaiian vacation, auditioning, volunteering and working part-time for Insight for the Blind. And, he still does vacation fill-in work at 101.5 LITE FM about 4-weeks a year. When he runs into surprised former employees in the hallway, he just tells them that I've accrued 48 weeks of vacation! On TV and films, Dave has appeared in Burn Notice, Walker, Texas Ranger, Analyze This, and productions going way back to Miami Vice. His strength and spirit come from 45 years of marriage to his tremendously supportive wife, Jo-Ann; she's a year round angel.
