Buffalo Grove's Cam Ezell thriving in Chicago theatre industry

The Performers School (TPS) is beaming with pride for Buffalo Grove's 16-year-old Cam Ezell, one of their most accomplished students. Cast as the lead role in both of TPS' most recent productions at Ravinia Festival's Bennett Gordon Hall, Cam knows how to take control of any stage. He shined as both Joseph in Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and became a fan favorite as Winnie in Winnie the Pooh.

Stacey Flaster, co-founder of TPS, explains that "Cam is one of our most dedicated students. He always comes to rehearsal on time with a smile on his face and his script in his hand. He is always prepared. From the minute he walked into our studio the first time, we knew he was a true professional. He is just a joy to be around both on and off the stage."

To no one's surprise, Cam has also earned main roles at many other popular Chicagoland theatres including Drury Lane Theatre and Marriott Theatre. Most notably, he performed as lead boy in Elf at Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire, and Bye Bye Birdie at Drury Lane Oakbrook.

Cam's vocal coach and co-founder of TPS Liz Fauntleroy, says "I have been Cam's vocal coach for four years. From his very first day of working with me and performing with our school he has always been dedicated and hardworking. Cam always comes prepared to all of his lessons and every rehearsal. He has a true gift, and he deserves every bit of success in the professional world."

An exemplary TPS student, Cam recently harnessed his confidence, talents, and desire to make an impact by performing a solo cabaret concert at Skokie Theatre. There, he sang songs from his favorite musicals to raise both money and awareness for breast cancer. As they celebrate 5 years in business, TPS takes pride in producing students like Cam and applauds all he has accomplished.
