Question: DO DREAMS REALLY COME TRUE? The answer is = YES!
(Especially if you know what you want, work hard, and have solid family support.)
Sixteen year-old Broadway and stage star Travis Jordan Greisler showed his love for the theatre at an early age, when - to everyone's amazement - he memorized Phantom of the Opera at age two! He continued performing various shows in his basement at home for his family and friends until at age nine, he had the opportunity to act in a local production of Jesus Christ Superstar. Several professionals in the cast recommended various contacts to Travis' supportive parents. Soon, Travis had an agent - and on just his third audition, began his professional acting career portraying Tiny Tim in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular in 1993. This was followed by his role as Tommy 10 in The Who's Tommy on Broadway, which he performed for 1½ years.
Travis then had the opportunity to participate in a number of staged readings, including portraying Young Charlie Chaplain in The Little Tramp at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center, Great Expectations at the John Houseman Studio Theatre, and The Heights performed at the Manhattan Theatre Club. At the same time, Travis was a member of
the Broadway Kids with whom he has appeared on television and released several albums, toured the country and performed in Italy for a series of benefits concerts.
Travis portrayed the role of Gavroche in the Third National Tour of Les Miserables.
He returned from the tour to record an album with the Broadway Kids, and appeared
on numerous television shows, including The Rosie O'Donnell Show, Live With Regis and Kathy Lee, and The Kathy Lee Gifford Christmas Special.
At 13, Travis perfomed in the Broadway Workshop based on the history of the rock group Queen, and then traveled - playing Young Josh in the First National Tour of Big. Travis continued to star in workshops and his school shows, and won acclaim in his first Shakespeare play, A Midsummer Night's Dream, portraying the role of Puck, at the McCarter Theatre in Princeton, NJ.
Most recently, Travis appeared in the workshop of the upcoming Broadway show,
Tom Sawyer, and was a Directors' Apprentice at this past year's McCarter Theatre performance of Shakespeare's As You Like It.
Travis continues to pursue his dream, spending his time studying the theater and acting, and is looking forward to future opportunities as a director.
