Thomas Grigsby (Winthrop Paroo) will be a 7th grader at Monroe Middle School in the fall. This is his 4th production with The Shedd. He first appeared in White Christmas and then played Kurt in The Sound of Music. Last summer, he enjoyed the role of Louis Leonowens in The King And I. He also performed in two RCT productions this past year, Fiddler on the Roof and Bye, Bye Birdie. Like his character Winthrop Paroo, Thomas plays the trumpet. He also plays the piano and enjoys running. Thomas would like to thank The Shedd for this opportunity and his piano and voice teacher Marcee Long for her guidance and support.
