On April 5th 2023 in Key West, Florida, Mexican actor and singer Sebastian Treviño stepped into the role of Emilio Estefan in the US National Tour of On Your Feet!

Sebastian has been part of the show's ensemble since the national tour begun in November 2022. He plays different characters on the show such as ¨Chris-Music Producer¨, ¨Dr. Neuwirth¨, ¨Gloria's Fan¨ and he also understudies Emilio. Just 2 hours before going on stage that night, Sebastián got the news that he would be playing Emilio Estefan since the main actor was not feeling well.

" Being an understudy is not an easy job because most of the time you work alone but on the other hand it gives you these unexpected and wonderful opportunities". Sebastian Treviño

Sebastian auditioned for the Spanish production of the show in January 2022 and weeks later was offered the role of "Phil, the producer". Unfortunately, while waiting for that answer , he was offered a job in the Musical The Pretty Pants Bandit , which he accepted and had to leave to Atlanta for the production of this show.

Later that year a new opportunity came up to audition for the National Tour of On Your Feet! Having made a strong impression with casting, Sebastian was invited to re audition. This time he was offered an enssamble role with various understudies which he accepted, culminating in his principal debut.
