Eric Sciotto ’93 has accomplished major success in his career after MPS. His latest achievement is being cast as Giuseppe in the Chicago run of Light in the Piazza starring opera-sensation Renee Fleming. During Eric’s four years at MPS, he performed in all of the spring musicals, was in a few of the winter plays, and was also a member of the show choir and dance company.
After graduating from Mercyhurst Prep, Eric went on to further his performing arts education at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music, one of the top musical theatre programs in the country. Since receiving his BFA in 1997, his career has taken off. He has performed in twelve Broadway shows: Aida, Annie Get Your Gun, Sweet Smell of Success, Sweet Charity, 42nd Street, A Chorus Line, Cry-Baby, Pal Joey, Rock of Ages, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and most recently Something Rotten in which he starred as William Shakespeare. He has even toured the nation in a couple of shows.
Aside from all of his success on Broadway, he also works behind the scenes. He flies around to teach master classes in musical theatre performance and musical theatre dance, and he directs and choreographs musicals and plays as well. Just this past fall, he joined the musical theatre faculty at the University of Utah.
