Cregan was raised in Okemos, Michigan, where he attended Okemos High School and studied with choral director, Frank K. DeWald. Curtis attended Okemos High School at the same time as Smallville's Tom Welling.

His first performing job was as an emcee for the Nickelodeon show at Kings Island. After college, he made his Broadway debut in Rent. From there, he went on to play such roles as Doody from Grease, Dickon from The Secret Garden, and one of the Von Trapp Family from The Sound of Music.

In 2003, he joined the American version of the children's television show Hi-5. His role is similar to that of Stevie Nicholson's (formerly Tim Harding's) in the original Australian version.

Cregan also provides the voice of Kimee Balmilero's mischief-making friend Jup-Jup.
