Trevor Patient, Director / Technical
Trevor has produced and directed numerous shows, plays, revues, tours, pantomimes and theatre schools over the last 25 years (he lost count at 400) and considers himself very lucky to be both technically minded as well as creative. He has an extremely broad understanding of all aspects of theatre and production and his entrepreneurial spirit has lead to the creation of countless performances.
He studied music and drama in the UK where he also learned to conduct and he served in The Princess of Wales’ Royal Regiment as a TA bandsman. He toured England and Europe with various theatre and dance companies as company/stage manager.
He moved to Perth in 2002 and soon started producing theatre schools and musicals including the very successful ‘Tribute to the Blues Brothers’ which played at nearly every major venue in Perth!
Trevor was the first to study the Stage & Production Management Bachelor of Performing Arts course at The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, where he also worked duty technician.
