About George Raboni

Quick Biography

George Raboni is a former United States Marine and while completing a 27 year career as a New York Police Officer he studied with N.Y. acting coach, Allen Savage. George has been performing on stage for the past 25 years and is a member of the Screen Actors Guild and Actor's Equity. One of George's proudest credits is being the first Caucasian actor to perform in the Nuyorican Poet's Cafe in the Pulitzer Prize winning play by Wesley Brown, "Life During Wartime".

At the Eastern States Theatre Association Festival, Spring 2003, George was cited with an "Excellence in Acting" award for his portrayal of numerous characters in "The Laramie Project" written by Moises Kaufman and the members of the Tectonic Theatre Project.

Past credits include performing the role of Burton in the J.E.T. Productions version of "Burn This", Stanley in the Small Pond Entertainment's production of "Because of Beth, Det.

George is proud of his numerous TV, Indie and NYU / Columbia student film projects

After taking a brief respite from acting, so as to finish his demanding law enforcement career, George resumed his acting pursuit with reckless abandon. George tested the waters as a playwright, penning his first short play "Angel Garden" which made it to the finals of the 2010 Aery Theatre Company's 20/20 Play Competition at the Phillipstown Thearte in Garrison, N.Y. Most recently George performed the role of E.K. Hornbeck in the Antrim Theatre Company's production of "Inherit The Wind" (youtube.com "Antrim Theatre Inherit The Wind", Section's 3 & 11) and George in Neil Simon's "Chapter Two", both performances receiving rave reviews. Again, George "strode the stage like a colossus" (as per the playwright) in Chuck Orsland's "Dive Bar" which had a successful run in Dec. 2011 at the Roy Arias Theatre. George is penned as the lead in Orsland's upcoming production later this year.

Along with his acting pursuits, George has performed Stand-Up at Caroline's and other local comedy clubs in the City, is a karaoke aficionado and is a Harley enthusiast, who has traveled the country with his wife of 25 years, Margie.
