Trevor can only be described as a thespian veteran. He has been involved with the Orlando Shakespeare Theater since he was three years old, and has even performed professionally with their cast in multiple productions. It had always been his dream to be cast in a production at the Orlando REP, but getting the part was never an easy feat. However, Trevor kept persevering and ended up capturing the role as the understudy to the lead of their latest comedy.
Although Tech Week can be stressful, Trevor recalls a memory of comic relief where the cast was practicing a specific scene in the opening that consisted of a table with a jar of flowers and water. As part of the script, Peter slams a book down, but this time water accidently spilled everywhere from the jar, leaving the cast in wet costumes and a challenge to improvise on the spot.
Working with a “fantastic cast and crew” and a “director from Colorado who was great and always offered helpful advice” we guarantee this won’t be Trevor’s last performance at the Orlando REP. With dreams to be a pilot, he still finds his passion for acting mingling with his passion for flying. “When we do a show, we have to rehearse a lot. When you fly, you also have to be prepared, rehearsed, even memorized. With these skills in theater and improvisation you learn how to prepare for the circumstances that could arise when flying.”
We have no doubt here at St. Barnabas that Trevor will be yet another stellar example of our accomplished alumni upon graduation. His experience, he describes has been “Beyond fun.”
