Although not onstage this year, Derek is pumped to be running the marketing for this year's Christmas show! Derek and his wife, Whitley, recently adopted a brand new baby girl, Dorothy, and they could not be more in love. As a family, the three of them enjoy traveling, performing, teaching kids about musical theater, and hanging out with their dog, Arrow. Future dreams include living in Europe and learning to fly airplanes. Derek and Whitley started Davis Academy of Musical Theater this past fall and have loved the opportunity it's given them to share their passion for musical theater with the next generation of performers.

Thanks to my amazing, hilarious, beautiful, inspirational, loving, perfect wife. You are my everything. I love you!
