Spotlight On...Nate Trinrud

Name: Nate Trinrud

Hometown: Rock Island, IL

Education: Northwestern University

Select Credits:
I've maxed out every card I've ever had.

Why theater?:
Was told "face too weird" for film.

Tell us about HELIX, HELIX: The story of you, me, and us; A Sloan Commission:
Its about those girls from college who always post those articles about feminism and then you're all like... wait whaaaaaat. I hate you. BUT I LOVE WOMEN AND RESPECT WOMENS RIGHTS! No but seriously. It's a really important play about topics that will change our socioeconomic structures. And science.

What is it like being a part of HELIX, HELIX: The story of you, me, and us; A Sloan Commission?: Torture. I have asked to be released from this production on numerous occasions. No dice.

What kind of theater speaks to you? What or who inspires you as an artist?: Really into mime right now. Just really feeling it.

Any roles you’re dying to play?: I would like to play the role of Lea Michelle playing the role of a human-person. It would be a challenge, but I'm up for it.

What’s your favorite showtune?: "You Done Right" from Raisin! the Musical.

If you could work with anyone you’ve yet to work with, who would it be?: Chad Michael Murray or The Ying Yang Twins

Who would play you in a movie about yourself and what would it be called?: Ron Rifkin as Nate Trinrud in "I'm Not Getting Texts right Now; The Nate Trinrud Story"

What show have you recommended to your friends?: Bring it On: The Musical (non-equity touring production)... but only the performances in Kansas. The rest have been garbage. Really found the sweet spot in Kansas, though.

What’s the most played song on your iTunes?: Sleep Sounds Volume 5: "The Jungle is Alive with the Sounds of the Night!"

What’s your biggest guilty pleasure?: Plucking.

What’s up next?: We could grab coffee or see a movie? I'm free all month. But...you'll have to pay. That cool? Hit me up. Also, come see HELIX, HELIX and buy your tickets in advance because I hear Joan Rivers is coming on one of the nights. http://here.org/shows/detail/1396/
