Summer Rognlie Trisler ’88

Summer Rognlie Trisler ’88 says, “I earned my living as an actor, doing many national and European tours (including Cats) as well as regional theater. I went on to perform in the West End of London in the title role of the new musical Maddie (original cast recording), Personals (original cast recording), and numerous BBC live musicals, such as A Chorus Line and Sweet Charity. I was a principal actor in Lady in the Dark (original cast recording) at the Royal National Theatre, which won the Olivier Award for Best Musical that year. I subsequently performed on Broadway starring in Mamma Mia and performing in Saturday Night Fever. Today I’m the successful business owner of Sunshine Music Together, an early-childhood music development program for children aged birth to 5 and their caregivers. We have six locations in the greater Seattle area; a team of great teachers and staff; and more than 750 participating families.”
