Tremaine Leaso won best supporting actor in the Showdown Secondary Schools’ Competition Awards on Saturday 3 November at the Mercury Theatre. In the Lynfield College production of Wheeler’s Luck, he played Perry, an aging farmer who constantly babbled and had a crush on Miss Piggy.
Tremaine played the role with imagination taking every opportunity to get a laugh out of the audience. No one can forget his hilarious hobbling gait every time he entered or exited. His larger than life interpretation of this character won him the award.
Tremaine has produced many unforgettable performances at the school and he will be sorely missed now he is moving to the next stage of his life.
