New York City’s AMC Empire Theater hosted a screening of ‘Trevor: The Musical’ on June 20.
Set in 1981, Trevor: The Musical tells the story of Trevor, an energetic and lovable teen struggling to navigate his identity and the challenging world of middle school.
The movie is a filmed version of the Off-Broadway musical, which is based on the 1995 Academy Award-winning short film Trevor, which in turn inspired the founding of The Trevor Project, a LGBTQ youth suicide prevention nonprofit organization.
Trevor: The Musical‘s star Holden William Hagelberger (Trevor), and creative team including Dan Collins (book and lyrics), Julianne Wick Davis (music), and Marc Bruni (director), were in attendance at the event and participated in a moderated question and answer segment after the screening.
The musical includes a talented cast of teens and adults, including Mark Aguirre, Aaron Alcaraz, Ava Briglia, Sammy Dell, Tyler Joseph Gay, Ellie Kim, Colin Konstanty, Brigg Liberman, Diego Lucano, Alyssa Emily Marvin, Isabel Medina, Echo Deva Picone, Dan Rosales, Aryan Simhadri, Yasmeen Sulieman, Sally Wilfert, Aeriel Williams, and Jarrod Zimmerman.
Many members of the cast were at the screening, as were Larry Saperstein and Julia Lester — stars of Disney+’s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series
