Chris Cameron, a high school senior in Colorado Springs, is autistic. But that didn’t stop him from landing a supporting role in Pine Creek High School’s production of “How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”
Being on stage has had a tremendous impact on Chris. Not only has it increased his confidence, but it’s helped with his light and noise sensitivity as well. He’s forged new, meaningful friendships and has been an inspiration to the cast. His teachers even say that he’s been more confident in the classroom since joining this production. It seems he’s found his niche!
His cast mates call him “the hardest working man in show biz” and have affectionately given him the nickname “The DJ” because of his vast music knowledge.
We hope Chris goes on to perform in many more shows after high school. We can’t wait to see him on the big screen or Broadway someday! This talented actor and cool kid will continue to be a blessing to those around him wherever he goes.
