David starred as baseball hero, Joe Hardy in the 2009 production of Damn Yankees at Melbourne’s State Theatre as part of The Production Company’s season.
The story is a modern retelling of the Faust legend set during the 1950s in Washington, D.C., during a time when the New York Yankees dominated Major League Baseball. Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd trades his soul to the Devil, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory . As young baseball sensation Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life he's left behind.
The cast also included David Whitney (The Producers) as Joe Boyd, Matt Hetherington (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) as Mr Applegate, Anne Wood (Mamma Mia) as Meg and Pia Morley (The Sound of Music) as Lola.
