Nick Ferrao

Born and raised in New Jersey, Nick started performing in community and regional theaters at ten years old. After high school, he moved to New York to study Musical Theatre at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. While in college, Nick took several masterclasses with Casting Directors and discovered that this was a career path he was most passionate about pursuing. That career began with an internship at Telsey + Company in 2016 where he had the pleasure of working on a variety of projects including NBC’s Hairspray Live, Williamstown Theatre Festival, MCC Theatre, Wicked and Hamilton. Nick has also been a freelance assistant for NBC and Tara Rubin Casting. 
 
During the 2020 shutdown, Nick started the ‘Broadway Belters’ account on Instagram where he shares his favorite theatrical performances from the Golden Age to today. ‘Broadway Belters’ has garnered a large and loyal following since its inception. That success led to the creation of ’The Broadway Belters Podcast’ where Nick sits down with some of Broadway’s brightest stars to learn more about the behind the scenes of their careers. In the Fall of 2021, he launched ‘Broadway Belters LIVE!’, a cabaret series featuring Broadway performers and up-and-coming talent.

Nick is passionate about championing actors and believes they do their best work when the audition room is a warm, inviting and safe space for everyone involved.
