An outspoken, passionate and proactive advocate for all aspects of theatre and the performing arts, Triston Wallace is perhaps best recognized as a casting consultant for film and theatre productions, a theatre critic, and a triple threat performer with various choirs and theatre productions.
Having received vocal training from Tisha’s Vocal Academy, Dr. Vertrelle Mickens, the Marionettes Chorale and the Eastern Youth Chorale, and acting training from Raymond Choo Kong and Necessary Arts, Triston has performed numerous times at Queen’s Hall. These credits include Decibel’s Zombie Island (2016- 2019); Zico (2018); Les Miserables (2014); The King and I (2013); The Sound of Music (2012) and Hairspray (2012). He has also choreographed for a laundry list of choirs and theatre productions, and highlights his work with Native Caribbean Foundation’s ‘Rockin’ Snow White (2019 – 2020), Brian Mac Farlane’s Christmas Joy (2015 – 2019), Simeon Moodoo‘s ‘The Inspector‘ (2016 – 2017) with Naparima College, and AIDA the Musical (2018) with Presentation College Mixed Choir as some of his most memorable experiences.
In addition to his work in technical theatre, having received training in Stage Management under Leslie Nathaniel, and interning in Lighting Design under Curtis Bachan, Triston is also an arts administrator, publicist, certified inbound marketer and social media manager. His clients in this respect have included Kes the Band, Shurwayne Winchester, Juan Pablo Alba Dennis, Raymond Choo Kong Productions, and the National Drama Association of Trinidad and Tobago (NDATT) to name a few. He is also a former NDATT Vice President, and is the current PRO of the Caribbean Secondary Schools’ Drama Association.
In 2008, in an effort to make the performing arts a viable career option for creatives in T&T, Triston founded the Trinidad and Tobago Performing Arts Network, a non-profit organization with the mission to create a more visible, accessible and sustainable performing arts industry in Trinidad and Tobago. The Network has since become “an invaluable part of the T&T and Regional Theatre and performing arts landscape, the digital beacon leading the way into the future of a more unified and collaborative Creative Caribbean community.”
