ABOUT The founder
Dominick Raffaele, originally from Canarsie, Brooklyn, grew up on Long Island where he developed his love for theatre and the performing arts. He began performing at a young age at several community theatres on Long Island. After seeing his first Broadway show, Beauty and the Beast, Dominick instantly knew what he wanted to do with the rest of his life. After high school, Dominick attended several performing arts colleges in hopes of pursing a degree in performance, but during that journey, life took him in a new direction. Ultimately, Dominick found himself getting a degree in education and starting up Raffaele Productions. Just before the 2020 pandemic, Dominick was eager and hopeful to begin performing again and "get back in the game." He began taking classes, working with renowned coaches, and began building a reel. Here, he was inspired to take all he had learned, the connections he had made, and provide opportunities to his company actors. Now in 2021, Raffaele Productions is being taken to a new level; providing opportunities that could be life changing. With his continued focus on his own performance career, his connections continue to grow, and he is ecstatic as to what doors this may open for everyone in his company; which he considers family. Overall, Dominick has said since the very beginning that his ultimate dream in life is to have someone say that he inspired them or made them believe in themselves to accomplish something they didn't think they could do.
