The Cabaret

Co-Host: Trey Norris as Treyla Trash

Trey Norris is honored to be a part of the inaugural show with the Bay Street Cabaret. A native to Savannah, Trey is an active member of The Bay Street Theatre, Collective Face Theatre Ensemble, and is the assistant General Manager at Club One Jefferson. His passion for music and stage gave birth to a drag character known to downtown Savannah as “Treyla Trash,” and is often seen at the Club One Cabaret on Thursday or Sunday evenings. You may have seen him as Frank-N-Furter in The Rocky Horror Show, Christopher Boone in Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night, or Guilliano in Big Love. Trey’s passions include classical music, reading, and the art of female impersonation.

Co-Host: JoJo Ward as Carman iCandy

Carman iCandy, also known as JoJo Ward, is a Savannah native. She developed a love for performing at the young age of 2 years old through singing and dancing along to The Wizard of Oz in her bedroom. She could recite every line and lyric on her own, without even watching the screen. She grew and participated in play productions through school and summer camps, developing an even deeper love for musical theatre. From musicals such as Grease to Into the Woods, every new show she discovered made her officially decide that performing was the career of her dreams. She studied advanced courses throughout high school and went on to obtain her Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre Performance at Armstrong State University. Having captured the first ever finale win of the Club One Star Search competition, Carman also works as an educator at the Savannah Children’s Theatre and choreographs other local community theatre productions. Though ecstatic to finally make the transition from Facebook LIVE to In-person shows with the Bay Street Cabaret, Carman still plans to relocate to New York City in hopes to pursue her dream of performing on a Broadway stage.
