“The most fulfilling ways to connect with humans for me are both on stage and in front of the camera.”
Charles-Smith Métellus performing for a virtual True Story Theater show
I am Black. I want to act. The most fulfilling ways to connect with humans for me are both on stage and in front of the camera.
I have been blessed with extensive experience in acting, singing, and dancing during my adult life. In 2020, during the pandemic, I wrote my very first album titled “8 Mournful Prayers.” The album demystifies the pandemic-induced and the climate change-induced anxieties, the heritage of indigenous peoples in America, the circle of life, the healing power of recovery, love, and the vulnerability of African Americans to police brutality.
I produced the music through the GarageBand app and am now in the process of creating music videos through iMovie in accordance with each song. I have already released four of my songs on my YouTube page. The remaining four songs are yet to come.
Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, to Haitian parents, I immigrated to Arlington in 2017. I have been a proud member of True Story Theater ever since.
