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"
aka Vancouver.
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.


  1. Isn't it wonderful how things work out sometimes??!!!

  2. How awesome that lady came to town! Sounds like the teenagers of your town benefited! His head shot is adorable!

    As for the banner-- I use picasa to edit photos and this is one of their collage choices-photo pile. Then I save the collage as a photo. That's it.

  3. Hey you Trevor!!! What a great job you've done. I wished I could have been there to watch you. Miss you dearly sweety! Hugs Dagmar

  4. How amazing for him! And great that you support his dream... The pride's shining out in those pictures and it's lovely to see :)

  5. Fantastic for him :-)


  6. He has the look of a male lead. I predict this dude's going far!

  7. He looks like a movie star in the making. What a wonderful tribute you have done for him on this blog.

  8. Wow! Congratulations to Trevor -- and to you! How cool is that -- speaking as an ex-theatre person, I know how important that is. I'm so glad he has had the opportunity to continue to grow.

    And by the way, he has a GREAT look!
