Although Derek is taking a break from the stage this summer, he is excited to working with such an amazing group of people. Since closing up shop last season, life has been INSANE… to say the least. First, he and his wife went through a whirlwind adoption process and are now parents the most perfect little girl, Dorothy. Next, they started Cache Valley’s awesom-est musical theater academy, Davis Academy—which now has over 120 students. Then, their house literally burned down. Currently, they are running Pickleville’s acclaimed summer camps, Pickleville Workshops, and having a blast. Up next, he, Whitley and Dorothy are headed on an epic around-the-world adventure, starting September 2018. Follow along on Instagram: @derekbyrondavis
Thank you to my amazing wife for making every day an adventure! I love you.
Derek has found himself on the unfortunate side of an agreement with his wife in which every Sunday she gets to tickle him for 9 seconds without him being able to defend himself.
One time Derek and Whitley took a redeye flight from NYC to Shanghai, spent the day at Shanghai Disneyland, and then took another redeye flight from Shanghai to Manila. All in all, they went about 64 hours without any real sleep. They wouldn’t recommend it.
