Joey Nestra grew up in Murrieta, CA. He got his first taste of musical theater in a community theater production of Oliver in the title role. Joey has since performed in musicals all over Southern California, and even took part in the world premiere of Eric Whitacre’s Paradise Lost in Berlin, Germany. His credits include Gordon/Markus in Rent (Campus Theater), Willard in Footloose (Titan Theater), Zebulun/Baker in Joseph…Dreamcoat (Performance Riverside), Charlie Brown in You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown (Titan Theater). Joey has also been in dance ensembles and feature roles in The Producers (Maverick Theater), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (Victoria Gardens), Oklahoma (Downey Civic Light Opera), and Music Man (Fullerton Civic Light Opera). He is currently in rehearsals for Inland Valley Repertoire Theater’s production of Chicago and The Mysterium Theater’s production of Jesus Christ Superstar.
When asked how being a dancer helps him in his job as a call center representative at DDS, Joey answered “I’ve noticed that most dancers, especially male dancers, like having someone to speak to who has been there and have first hand experience with the product. It puts them at ease and it allows us to impart a few little secrets and tricks of the trade”.
