Landon Tavernier as Milo

With a background in film, theatre and modeling, Landon’s most recent work includes a World Premiere of an adaptation from author Bonnie Jo Campbell’s “American Salvage” which was followed by a talk back on stage with the author herself; before hitting the Toledo Blade newspapers. In addition, the short film, “Light Eyes”, was promoted on the Toledo News before screening at the Maumee Indoor Theater in Ohio. In his audition, Landon brought both an earnestness and melancholiness to the character of Milo that we are excited to see more of in production.
