Cameron Leavitt is an exemplary senior and outstanding performing artist at both Monterey High School and in the Monterey community.

“One of the best feelings is getting up on stage and feeling the rush of energy take over your body,” Leavitt said. “I sing, dance and act because I love it and I always will.”

Leavitt has been a student at Monterey High from freshman to senior year, and has been involved in numerous activities, including one of his greatest passions, theatre arts.

“I fell in love with theatre as a little kid,” said Leavitt. “I had to do it for school, and that was the first time I got introduced to theatre.”  His first theatre experience was in a fourth grade play called “The Emperor’s New Clothes.”

During high school, Leavitt has been involved in fifteen productions at MHS and local community theatres, some of the productions being  “13 the Musical” with Western Stage, “Madagascar Live” with Pacific Repertory Theatre, and,  most recently,  the Western Stage Showcase Revue and Monterey High’s production of “Legally Blonde the Musical.”

This abundant theatre experience has given him the opportunity to showcase his outstanding abilities as an actor, singer, and dancer.

“I learned how to work with others in the creation and portrayal of several different characters,” said Leavitt of his theatre experience. In working with others in the environment, he said, “They are loving people. I like how it builds a family; I like being there.”

Along with his triumphs in stage work, Leavitt joined the Arts Media Performance Academy during his sophomore year.

“I joined A.M.P. because of my love for theatre,” he said. “I wanted to meet people who had similar interests.”

A.M.P. provided more artistic expression opportunities for Leavitt because it helped him to create his portfolio website and to spend even more time around the arts at school.

Outside of his school efforts, Leavitt’s talents are recognized in his work at Western Stage and the Pacific Repertory Theatre. Recently, he was offered a professional position in a show with the West Valley Light Opera Music Theatre Company.

To those thinking of joining theatre and finding their passion, Leavitt gives the advice of staying open to new things and being kind toward those around you.

He said, “Don’t be scared. Just do it; take a risk.”
