A filmed performance of Trevor: The Musical's Off-Broadway run at Stage 42 will debut June 24 on Disney+.
Based on an original story by Celeste Lecesne and Peggy Rajski's 1995 Oscar-winning short film, the musical follows 13-year-old Trevor, who struggles to navigate his own identity and determine how he fits in a challenging world on a journey of self-discovery.
The Off-Broadway run featured Holden William Hagelberger from Sugarland, Texas, in the title role, alongside 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.
Trevor: The Musical features a book and lyrics by Dan Collins with music by Julianne Wick Davis, direction by Marc Bruni, and choreography by Josh Prince. The short film on which it is based also inspired The Trevor Project, the largest nonprofit organization committed to suicide prevention and mental health support for LGBTQ young people. The organization was not affiliated with the musical.
The Off-Broadway production also featured scenic design by Donyale Werle, costume design by Mara Blumenfeld, lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski, sound design by Brian Ronan and Cody Spencer, music direction by Matt Deitchman, and orchestrations by Greg Pliska with casting by Tara Rubin Casting. Producers were Roy Furman, John Ambrosino, Josie Bray, and Mark Woods.
The filmed version was directed by Robin Mishkin Abrams and produced by RadicalMedia. Jon Kamen, Dave Sirulnick, Meredith Bennett, and Jonathan Meyers serve as executive producers.
