Trevor's Acting Debut
Some of you may remember a post I wrote in August
featuring my son & his first acting class,
& his ultimate goal of being a professional actor.
One of the disadvantages of our small town way up north,
Is the lack of options for that kind of thing.
We are, after all, 5 hours north of "Hollywood North"
Yes, they have drama classes in school,
but because I wanted him to take a "learning strategies" class,
Trevor was not able to take drama this year.
Anyways, this wonderful gal named Sheila moved to town
Her loves are teenagers and acting
And she opened a drama "business" (for lack of a better word)
And put on a spring break drama camp, every afternoon for 2 weeks.
The kids wrote a play, produced it, did "head shots" & practiced auditioning.
Some did it for the fun of it, but for Trevor it was serious stuff.
He blossomed & bloomed in the compliments,
And his self-esteem rose up through the roof.
He played a grumpy, mouthy, teenaged murder suspect,
which, I have to admit,
wasn't a great stretch of the imagination for him.
But he did it well, I was proud of him,
and best of all....
He was proud of himself.
