Trevor Portlock 04 played the role of Thomas Carrisford in the Cotsen Players Alumni Day production of Sara Crewe, performed in the Cotsen Childrens Library at Firestone. Based on the novel A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett, Sara Crewe was written by Robert Sandberg 70, a lecturer in the English department, and directed by photographer Adena Spingarn 03.
The kids were right there in front of you packed into this small library, so it was fun to see their reactions and how they really got into the story, said Portlock, whose return to the stage for the first time since high school was encouraged by his brother John 01. John played Sara Crewes father in the production and acted in the Cotsen Players production of Rapunzel last year. Trevor, who is from Wilton, Connecticut, plans to major in political economy, works in Princetons public safety office, and plays an intense game of intramural hockey.
