In Broadway, Fontana is probably best known for his role in the 2013
Broadway production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. He plays Prince Topher in the production. On December 16, 2014, he will go on tour with the production.
Besides the stage, Fontana has been in a web series and Disney's Animated Feature, Frozen.
From 2011 through 2012, Fontana played Aaron Miller in the comedy web series Submissions Only. The series is about the casting and the audition process of Broadway, and revolves around the character Penny Reilly and her friend, family, colleagues, and a casting director and his circle of friends. He plays Aaron Miller, a talented but blasé actor. His character is often Penny's love interest.
In 2013, Disney released their new new animated feature, Frozen. Fontana plays the villian, Hans in the movie. For his audition for the role, he sang I Feel Pretty from West Side Story, but he tweaked the lyrics in a boastful, yet comical way.
- Fontana had an unusual audition for Frozen. He sang "I Feel Pretty" from the musical West Side Story for his audition, though he altered the lyrics. Of this, he quotes, "So basically, all that they told me about the character was he's super confident, perhaps overly confident, he needs to be able to sing with a 'Broadway sound' and he's really good with women, but he may have a dark side. I came into the sound studio and I was very nervous and I sang this."
- Fontana sang live with his co-star, Kristen Bell at a private event. They sang Love is an Open Door.
- Fontana received a pet fish from Cinderella co-star Laura Osnes as an opening night present. The fish’s name is Herman, and he resides in Fontana’s dressing room (and occasionally at Crumbs bakery next door).
