Since graduating from East15 Acting School with his Masters of Fine Arts in Acting, Daniel Helmer has worked mostly with Shakespeare, the Michigan Shakespeare Festival and other companies around the state. Throughout the school year, Mr. Helmer is featured in The Tour Company’s productions of Romeo and Juliet (Prince, Paris, and Mercutio) and Macbeth (Macbeth). The passion that was instilled in Daniel while he studied at Eastern Michigan University took him to East15 Acting School (MFA - 2013), which is located in London, England. While there he had the fortune to act with talent from 25 countries and on historical stages like Shakespeare’s Globe and GITIS in Moscow. He is overjoyed to be sharing this passion now with the minds of Eastern Michigan University.
