Meet the Cast: Trenton Judd stars as Beanie in children's production

 
Trenton Judd, who is the lead for the Northwestern Oklahoma State University theatre program’s children’s production of “Beanie and the Bamboozling Book Machine,” is shown here in last spring’s production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Judd and the rest of the cast will present the show to the public Saturday at 2 p.m. in Herod Hall Auditorium. Admission is $1 per person.

This week’s Northwestern Oklahoma State University theatre production will be led by Trenton Judd, Sapulpa junior, playing Beanie in the children’s play, “Beanie and the Bamboozling Book Machine,” written by Bob May, Christopher Tibbetts and Roy C. Booth.  The production will be open to the public Saturday at 2 p.m. Admission is $1 per person.

The speech and theatre major first became involved in theatre in sixth grade when he took a drama class, mostly filled with fun games and improv activities.  He enjoyed the class and stuck with it, going on to participate in competitive speech in high school.  With that he did many Individual Events (IE’s), mostly humorous interpretations.  Judd said he also enjoyed duets, both humorous and dramatic.

“In high school I was at a one-act competition where I won an all-star cast award that came with a scholarship to Northwestern,” Judd said.  “That was the first time I had really heard of the school, but I ultimately chose the school because of the scholarships.”

Judd said Northwestern was the only campus he visited when making his college decision, but he really liked the campus.  In the future, he would like to get into the television and film industry, which he imagines will start with an entry-level production assistant job until he learns more of the technical side of film.

“Beanie and the Bamboozling Book Machine” will be open to children in Alva and the surrounding areas Thursday and Friday at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.  The show will be open to the public Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Herod Hall Auditorium.
