THE BARR HILL PLAYERS
BHP Founder & Artistic Director
A graduate of Brown University, Trevor began acting at the age of 10 at the First Stage Theatre Academy in Milwaukee, the nation’s largest theatre training program for young people. Soon after, his professional career launched with Troika’s touring production of The Sound of Music, on which he traveled throughout East Asia as one of the iconic Von Trapp Children. Trevor’s passion for acting mixed with the martial arts and the native american philosophies on wilderness living taught by Tom Brown Jr. All of these elements combined to form his perspective on acting: an art not of performance, but of self-reflection and understanding. This focus on awareness of self and space and its ability to ground the actor in the present led him to form The Barr Hill Players.
