Travis Allen graduated from Washington College in 1999 with B.A. in Theatre, after working on (or appearing in) over 30 WAC drama productions. And he hasn’t been on stage since.
Instead, he used the skills that he honed at Washington College to further a career in marketing, specifically working within the licensed toy industry. In the past 10 years, Travis has served as the Marketing Director (and sometimes spokesperson) for several consumer products companies. He has had the good fortune to work with such iconic pop culture properties as Star Wars, Star Trek, Sesame Street, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Alien, Predator, James Bond, Walt Disney Classics, The Muppets (his personal favorite), and many more. (You might have actually seen Travis throughout 2006 and 2007, selling Lightsabers on the Home Shopping Network!)
Travis was thrilled to co-chair the 2010 Drama Alumni production—both to reunite with his friends, and to get back on stage. He hopes the reunion will serve not as his “one last shot” at theatre, but instead, as a re-introduction to the performing arts in his life.
