EXTRA EXTRA – The 2017 Kelsey Awards – Complete List of Nominees


Tristan had a great season at The Kelsey Theatre, performing memorably in both “The Odd Couple (Female Version)” and as Eric in “The Little Mermaid”. Now, he’s a nominee at this year’s Kelsey Awards!

How do you like working at The Kelsey Theatre?

TRISTAN: Working at Kelsey is always an interesting experience. I’ve had my ups and downs there, but over all, I have had a lot of fun.

What is your favorite Kelsey Theatre memory?

TRISTAN: My favorite memory would probably be sword fighting in “Romeo and Juliet”. Nothing beats the rush of stage combat.

What is your most embarrassing moment on or off stage that’s theater-related?

TRISTAN: I once sneezed in the middle of a scene. The only problem was that I was dead. Lucky for me I was young and it was a school show.

If there’s one person at The Kelsey Theatre you’ve been wanting to work with, but never had the opportunity, who is it and why?

TRISTAN: I still need to do a show with John Zimmerman. We’ve done shows where one is cast and one is crew, but haven’t been on stage together yet. Needs to happen.

What is your dream show that you’d like to work on?

TRISTAN: “Next to Normal”.

Are you excited for The Kelsey Awards on Saturday, August 19th?!

TRISTAN: Honestly, I’ve never been to one, so I don’t know what to expect.

A special message to all of the people who voted for you and made you a nominee…

TRISTAN: Thank you. Can’t wait to work with you again. Let’s get a drink.
