Scott Armato has been involved in all aspects of music and theatre since being bitten by the bug at age seven as an NYC Paperboy in Buena Regional High School's production of Annie. Since then, his life has been filled with artistic endeavors, both musical and theatrical, throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Scott is in near-constant demand as a musical director, having worked on several dozen full-length musicals, children's shows, and cabarets, including Spring Awakening, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, and [title of show]. Scott's casts routinely appreciate his attention to detail, his finely-tuned ear, and his ability to enjoy even the most difficult music, presenting it in such a way as to keep it accessible and fun.
Onstage, Scott is known for his comic timing and strong dramatic instinct. Favorite roles include "Max Bialystock" in The Producers,
"J. Bruce Ismay" in Titanic, "Tateh" in Ragtime, "Juror #8" in Twelve Angry Men, and "Sweeney Todd" in Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
In addition, Scott is a highly sought-after legit lyric baritone, available for weddings, funerals, or a random Tuesday that you've decided needs more music. He is noted for his Improv workshops, which are both fun and a learning experience for young and old alike.
And, if you ask nicely, Scott will happily kick your butt in chess.
