E. Cesar Trevino:Techer [Hello, my name is Eutimio Cesar Trevino. I have been a theatre teacher for 10 years. I’ve taught Middle School Theatre for 8 years in both South Texas (The Rio Grande Valley) and here in Austin; and Two years of High School Theatre here at John H. Reagan Early College High School in Austin Texas.
My background in Theatre began when I was a Radio/TV/Film major at The University of Texas Pan American, currently the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV). At Pan Am, as it was nicknamed, our RTF (radio/tv/film) program was an extension of our theatre program. In order to be a RTF major, every RTF student had to enroll in at least one acting class. All it took was one semester of acting, and I was immediately bit by the acting bug. I strove to be a strong actor and an even stronger director, and took every theatre and RTF class that I could. Additionally, I worked in the UTPA Theatre department’s scene shop, where I assisted on building sets, painting, hanging and focusing lights, and all technical work for the theatre for four years. Ultimately, I graduated from UTPA in 2003 with a bachelor's degree in Theatre: Radio/Television/Film.
After College, before getting into the teaching profession, I acted and directed a few shot films, was a part-time editor for KRGV Channel 5 News, and even taught theatre at the McAllen Boys & Girls Club. Eventually, finding my calling as a theatre teacher, and the rest as they say, is history.
The Blue Jesters have performed various plays, including:
 - Arsenic and Old Lace (2016) (UIL)
       This play was performed at last years UIL competition and with it, the Blue Jesters were awarded with Alternate place. They did not advance, however. This comedy told the tale of The Brewster family and the hilarious antics that occur when Mortimer's Aunts being going on a killing spree. To top it off, the murders call the attention of Mortimer's estranged brother, Johnathan. 
- Night of The Living Dead (2016)
       This play is a classic satire of the 50's zombie flick. Taking place in a farmhouse, this play demonstrates the horror and comedy that comes from a zombie apocalypse.
- Eight Ways Pokemon Go is Destroying your Life (2017)
       This farce makes fun of the very popular Pokemon Go app.
- Candid (2017) (This play will be performed at this years UIL competition.)
       This drama tells the tale of TJ and his coming of age story when his mother decides that she cant take living with her family and decides to leave.
Students looking to join Theater should speak to Mr. Trevino or come to rehearsals every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 4:30-6:30.
