David Calhoun is a 17 year old senior in high school and dual-enrolled student at North Florida Community College. He is the son of Gary and Karen Calhoun, of Madison, however the family is originally from Orlando. David maintains a busy schedule-- he's a full-time student, works and is also involved in extra-curricular activities, including service as the treasurer for the executive board of NFCC's branch of the Student Government Association (SGA). However, Calhoun doesn't stop there-- over the years he has performed in countless dramatic productions in Madison; from Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and Oliver Twist at NFCC, to Cinderella, Rapunzel and Romeo and Juliet at Madison's Rural Area Theater. However, recently, David landed the lead role in a local movie filmed by Theater of Grace, a Christian-based theater company. David was first introduced to acting during his brother's school play when the lead role failed to show up. At the last minute, he was lassoed into taking the lead's place and, while holding the script each scene, he managed to save the show. His knack for acting was praised, and his mother contacted Jessica Webb with Madison's Rural Area Theater Troups (the RATT pact) and he began performing in various productions with the group. Years later, Calhoun heard about Theater of Grace and a casting call for the movie, Sorry Lessons, through Ms. Webb. He auditioned for the lead role of Kevin-- a troubled teenager who doesn't know what it means to be sorry. “It was very nerve-racking beforehand, but once you get out there and you start getting into the motion of things, you're okay,” said Calhoun. “I performed a role from one of my previous shows and I thought it went well judging by their reactions, but it was probably about a month or two later when I heard from them again.” After calling him in for a second audition, Theater of Grace contacted David and offered him the lead. Ever since, he and the cast have been filming in various locations, one of which is Advent Christian Village in Dowling Park. Sorry Lessons is still in production and there are only speculations as to when it will be released. The crew is shooting for a Fall release date, however, at the earliest, the movie could be out by the end of the summer. For more information, visit theaterofgrace.com/sorrylessonsthemovie. There are also two movie trailers on YouTube. Make sure you check them out and see Madison's own David Calhoun bring the character of Kevin to life for the big screen.
