Los Alamos Firefighter Danny McBride is a busy man who wears many hats.
In addition to his career in the LAFD, McBride, 37, is the father of three and recently landed one of the main roles in “Les Miserables,” which is playing at the Albuquerque Little Theatre this month.
The long-running Broadway show also celebrates the 84th season of the Albuquerque theater. A majority of the 200-plus cast and crew live in Albuquerque.
McBride plays Enjolras, a character that suits him well, he said.
“It has always been one of my favorite shows, so when I heard there were auditions, I decided to try out and I got the part,” McBride said. “I hadn’t done musical theater since high school and wanted to see if I could rise to the challenge of being on stage. It was definitely more than I expected.”
McBride was born, raised and still resides in Albuquerque.
McBride did not let the vigorous rehearsal schedule interfere with job as a firefighter. He said his co-workers at the LAFD supported him the whole way. “It’s been tough with my schedule.
McBride works 48-hour shifts at LAFD, then is home for four days a week.
Los Alamos was the first to hire him after he received his EMT license and he has been an active firefighter during the Las Conchas fire.
