During 2017, John-Michael appeared in Against The Grain Theatre's production of Puccini's La Bohème and in the fall of 2016, made his role debut as Le Conte Barigoule in Pauline Viardot's Cendrillon, both under the direction of Joel Ivany.

Additional theatrical credits include: MacBeth, The Winter’s Tale, Much Ado About Nothing, Cloud 9, Eurydice, Roanoke (NYU), Scenes from the Bathhouse, Moll (TIFT), A History of Summer (Summerworks), Romeo & Juliet (ATA) , The Land of Smiles (TOT), The Magic Flute, Der Freischütz, Alcina, Abduction from the Seraglio, Lucio Silla (Opera Atelier), El Gato con Botas, The Cunning Little Vixen, La Belle Hélène, Alcina (GGS Opera).

John-Michael was the inaugural season winner of CBC’s Triple Sensation, a program dedicated to discovering young Canadian triple threats. After a nation wide search, John-Michael was awarded the Chapters & Indigo Scholarship for the Arts. With this award, he trained at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where he refined his skills as an actor at The Atlantic Acting School and The Classical Studio.

He is also a proud graduate of The Royal Conservatory of Music's Glenn Gould School and Northwestern University's Bienen School of Music, where his principal teachers were Jean MacPhail and W. Stephen Smith.

Engaged in many aspects of the arts, John-Michael has worked in Development and Board Relations at The Harris Theater for Music and Dance in Chicago, and is currently the Marketing Coordinator at Opera Atelier.

Mr. Scapin currently resides in Toronto.
