Dallas Summer Musicals Best Actor Nominee
ABOUT DREW: The first role Drew Brown remembers playing required him to be dressed
up in a giant pizza costume. He’s come a long way. Recently, Brown returned from an Italy performance tour with his choir and is currently in two shows at OhLook Theatre, where he plays Valjean in Les Miserables and Tunny in American Idiot. Brown began taking acting classes when he was seven and learned how to combine his love of acting with his love of piano. These passions allow him to show people things that cannot be said with words alone.
Brown has been nominated as Best Actor for
his role as Tarzan in CSHS’s Tarzan at the 2015 Dallas Summer Musicals Awards. He has also had two honorable mentions in UIL One Act Zone and District 5A Competitions. In addition to performing at CSHS, Brown has performed at various theatres across the Metroplex.
When he is not acting, Drew stays busy as a member of the Varsity Choral Choir, Carroll Feminists Club, Carroll Executive Council, NHS, and Spanish National Honor Society. He’s also the VP of Best Buddies at CSHS.
FAVORITE CLASS: “AP U.S. History,” Brown says. “This class was definitely my most challenging, yet my goofy and incredibly smart teacher, Mr. Pinson, made me love it. He was a teacher I really connected with.”
WHAT OTHERS SAY: “Drew is a very talented young man with an amazing voice,” says Carroll Theater Director Roald Martinsen. “He continues to grow as an actor and dancer to make him a triple threat.”
