Trevor is Available for Licensing!

Theatrical licensor Music Theatre International (MTI) has announced that Trevor: The Musical is now available for licensing in the US and Canada.

With book and lyrics by Dan Collins and music by Julianne Wick Davis, the musical Trevor is based on the Academy Award-winning 1994 short film of the same name directed by Peggy Rajski, produced by Randy Stone and Peggy Rajski, and with an original screenplay by Celeste Lecesne.

It’s 1981 in America, and Trevor Nelson is busy navigating adolescence in suburbia while dreaming of a life in show business. When an embarrassing incident at school suddenly puts him in the wrong spotlight, Trevor must summon the courage to forge his own path. A deeply moving and funny story of self-discovery and the power of acceptance, Trevor: The Musical is about living your best life with a ton of passion… and a touch of pizzazz.

The musical had its world premiere at The Writers Theatre in Chicago and made its Off-Broadway debut in 2021.

Drew Cohen, President and CEO of Music Theatre International stated, “Since announcing MTI's representation of Trevor, the interest in this funny and moving show where young performers have the opportunity to play young characters has been incredible. The authors have also tailored the material to make it accessible to a variety of ages and the messages of being true to oneself are more relevant than ever."

“We are so thrilled that Trevor is now available through MTI to be enjoyed by audiences and performers alike,” said the show’s authors Dan Collins and Julianne Wick Davis.  Our process in creating the show was a labor of love; deeply personal but inspiringly universal in its resonance.  We can’t wait for Trevor’s joyful spirit of love and acceptance to be witnessed and shared by more and more people in need of its message.
