David Šášik – Reporter/Reviewer

In 2009, David became a viral hit in Black Veil Bride’s premiere music video, “Knives and Pens.” This music video earned over 130 million hits and David developed a fan base that continues to this day, and helped inspire his passion to pursue a career in film and television. His first acting studio experience was with Constance Tillotson where he studied scene technique as well as writing. One of the most formative times spent in an acting studio came later, however, when David studied improv, scene-work, and TV/Film acting with Patrick Day at Young Actors Space in Van Nuys.

Attending the University of California, Irvine, he double majored in Musical Theatre and Mathematics, and in 2018 graduated with honors with a BFA in Musical Theatre and a BS in Mathematics.

Also an accomplished musician, director and writer, he has performed in award-winning musical theatre productions throughout Southern California, such as San Diego Musical Theatre (“She Loves Me”), Laguna Playhouse (“Mamma Mia,” “Hairspray,” “All Shook Up”), Chance Theater (“Dogfight,” “The Little Mermaid”), Candlelight Pavilion (“Bonnie & Clyde”) and many others, receiving rave reviews for exemplary, professional performances.
