Treshelle Edmond Biography

Treshelle M. Edmond is an actress, model, and ASL performer that has been described as "a stand-out performer whose words seem to spill directly from the core of her body in waves of grief, anger and vulnerability." Treshelle's passion and expressiveness are un-paralleled which make her a triple threat in this industry. Treshelle was born September 10, 1990 in San Bernardino, California. She is the oldest of 3 children (she has one younger brother and one younger sister). Treshelle was diagnosed with having a severe to profound hearing loss in both ears when she was around 18 months old. Her family moved out of state and she attended Epic Elementary School in Birmingham, Alabama where she learned and became fluent in American Sign Language. It was at Epic Elementary where Treshelle first took the stage and found her love for performing. Treshelle and her family would ultimately move back to Southern California where she went on to graduate from Fairfax High School in Los Angeles, California. It was at Fairfax where the acting bug appeared. Treshelle auditioned for and landed a guest starring role on House, M.D. From there, she performed in the deaf choir on Glee. Treshelle did not have much acting experience but she had so much passion and natural ability she seemed to "wow" her audiences with every performance. In continuing her education, Treshelle attended California State University, Northridge where she majored in Child and Adolescent Development. It was at CSUN when she decided to audition for Deaf West Theater's production of Spring Awakening. The play launched at Inner City Arts Theater, a 99-seat theater in downtown Los Angeles in September 2014. By February 1, 2015, Treshelle was on the field at Super Bowl XLIX in Phoenix, Arizona signing America the Beautiful with John Legend and the National Anthem with Idina Menzel. Treshelle quickly learned that Spring Awakening would re-launch in May 2015 at the Wallis Center for Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, CA and she would reprise her role as Martha Bessel to a 500 seat theater crowd. Spring Awakening has since transferred and running on Broadway at the Brooks Atkinson Theater. You can see Treshelle Edmond in the cast of Spring Awakening through January 24, 2016.
