Trevor the Musical Streams This Week - Watch the Original Film Here

Nearly two years after releasing Hamilton on its streaming platform, Disney Plus is back with another filmed stage musical - this time its Trevor the Musical, which is set to premiere on the streamer this week.

Will more musicals follow? Here's what we know.



Trevor the Musical is based on the 1995 Academy Award-winning short film of the same name. The film, which was directed by Peggy Rajski, with an original screenplay by Celeste Lecesne, is now available to stream for free ahead of the Disney Plus premiere of the musical.

The musical, which played off-Broadway in 2021 and was filmed by RadicalMedia (Come From AwayHamiltonAmerican Utopia), will be released on Disney Plus on June 24, 2022. Jon Kamen, Dave Sirulnick, Meredith Bennett, and Jonathan Meyers serve as executive producers.

The musical tells the story of Trevor, a 13-year-old who goes on a turbulent journey of self-discovery. After Trevor faces an embarrassing incident at school, he has to gather his courage in order to pursue and forge his own path in life.

The original film ultimately inspired The Trevor Project, which is the world's largest suicide prevention and mental health organization for LGBTQ youth.



Stage musicals currently available on Disney Plus include Newsies: The Broadway Musical and Hamilton. Aladdin: The Broadway Musical is expected to be released in 2022, after being filmed just before closing in the West End.

The cast of Trevor the Musical includes Holden William Hagelberger in the title role, with 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 and music by Julianne Wick Davis. Direction is by Marc Bruni and the choreography is by Josh Prince. Trevor: The Musical was lead produced off-Broadway by Roy Furman, John Ambrosino, Josie Bray, and Mark Woods.

The filmed version of the musical, premiering exclusively on Disney+ on June 24, was directed by Robin Mishkin Abrams.
