Tyler Padgett is feeling very humbled and nostalgic as he begins his 9th production with Tennessee Valley Players. Tyler is a recent graduate of the University of Tennessee's School of Music and is beginning a master's of vocal performance program at the University of Colorado Boulder this fall. Tyler has had the pleasure of performing in TVP's past productions of Curtains (Bobby Pepper - 2010), Girl Crazy (Ensemble - 2011), Of Thee I Sing (French Ambassador - 2012), South Pacific (Radio Operator Bob McCaffrey - 2013), West Side Story (Bernardo - 2014), Les Miserables (Javert - 2015), Pirates of Penzance (Pirate King - 2016), and Anything Goes (Billy - 2017). Tyler has also had the privilege of performing with the University of Tennessee Opera Theater. His credits with UTOT include The Consul (Mr. Kofner), Don Giovanni (Masetto), Le Nozze di Figaro (Bartolo) and The Crucible (John Proctor). With Tyler's imminent departure from Knoxville, he would like to thank his friends, colleagues, and teachers who have enriched his life and influenced his development as a performer so much over the years. Tyler would like to give special thanks to Dr. Batey, Andrew Skoog, and Judith Bible. Their dedication to being incredible educators will always be a blessing. Tyler would also like to thank his parents for being his first, and always best, teachers and supporters.
