Past Projects



 

Kevin Co-Directed and Choreographed Les Miserables at Newark Memorial High School. He worked along with Melinda Lasit, Vocal Director, Steven Harrington, Executive Director and Artistic Director, and Barbara Williams, Co-Director, and Rob Hoexter, Musical Director. With an opera so vocally demanding they began vocals in October of 2002. The show opened on March 21st and closed on April 5th 2003. "What a labor of love. I had a blast working with the entire production staff as well as the talented students. What a blessing to work with my gifted wife. Newark Memorial had the voices for a show like this due to the work Melinda has been doing for the last eight years. The students sounded amazing, powerful and passionate! Melinda. . . you amaze me and I love you and I had a blast working with you again. Congrats to the entire team that created the magic of Les Mis at NMHS.


AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: I had a Co-Star Role and was the best friend of the criminal. He shot me in the back...ouch!! It was a fun shoot....my first time with a gunmaster and a stunt choreographer. UPDATE: The criminal was caught on December 30th, 2001. I'm proud to have been a part of the capture of this horrible person.

FOOL FOR LOVE: I performed at the Julia Morgan Theatre in Berkeley. Sam Shepard is my favorite playwright. I was the character Martin. Fool For loveFool For love

Bodywise Logo KAISER PERMANENTE: My first year in the program I did The Bodywise Show which shows to K-5, and it's our Health and Safety Show with full body costumes and puppets (We were trained by Lee Armstrong and Kamela Portuges of Images in Motion, they have worked for Jim Henson Productions.) I got the chance to play all the characters within the season, check them out by clicking on the pictures below.

 




My second year I was cast in Nightmare on Puberty Street which tours to Middle Schools and Junior High Schools. The show deals with such issues as peer pressure, suicide, fitting in, body changes, and how and why to say "No." The show is filled with hip-hop dancing, singing, and serious and comical acting. It's got everything. Click on the pictures below to see for yourself.

Out of all the gig's I have done in the past and the ones yet to come, I know I will always look back and be very proud of the work I have done with the Educational Theatre Programs. It's not just acting...but saving lives. I have seen over three hundred thousand students throughout Northern Cal. Not only have I improved my skills as an actor, I have grown to be a better human being. A BIG THANK YOU to all of ETP!
