actor. dancer. singer.
I'm Trent Tyson (he/him). I was born in Fredericksburg, Virginia and with some detours along the way, I ended up in Austin, Texas. There, my true love for musical theatre was born. However, I had my eyes set on being on stage ever since I can remember. When I was young, my grandmother bought my family tickets to the circus. I immediately was enthralled by the theatricality of it all but the thing that really caught my eye was the clowns. That's right, I wanted to be a circus clown. Growing up, my parents hardly knew what to do with me, except to graciously participate in my living room productions. Eventually, I settled on theatre and I was hooked. Upon my arrival in Texas, I soon joined the Pre-Professional Company at ZACH Theatre. There, I was guided and urged to hone in on my creativity and begin to refine my abilities.
After deciding to pursue musical theatre as a career (and more detours of course), I ended up at The Boston Conservatory at Berklee. At BoCo, I applied my love for physical comedy and storytelling to my journey in the discipline of dance. I am so thrilled to have worked with my amazing educators and peers to grow and reach out of my comfort zone! I now live in New York City to further pursue my aspirations as a professional performer. I am thrilled to enter a brand new industry and I'm excited to witness and be a part of necessary change.
Aside from performing, you can catch me jamming to 80s music, catching up on my queer history and cooking up a mean feast!
Trent was most recently seen in 'A Christmas Carol' at ZACH Theatre. Lovingly nicknamed 'Moulin Scrooge', this production is no ordinary Dickens adventure! Featuring music by Whitney Houston, P!nk, Walk the Moon, Tina Turner and way more.
