Kolton Stewart is a multi talented 19-year-old who was raised in Norfolk County. Discovering his passion for performance early on in life, Kolton began playing the drums at age two. He won several talent contests and awards, including the internationally-renowned Percussive Arts Society’s Larrie Londin Scholarship, and competed around the world with youth and adult pipe and drum bands, all before his tenth birthday. At the age of 8, after being sidelined with a broken leg as a young quarterback, he decided to pursue the theatre, auditioning for The Stratford Festival Theatre’s production of The Music Man. In 2010, after landing that part and several others at Stratford, he became the first Canadian child in the history of The Lion King to join the Broadway musical as Young Simba. Shortly after his North American tour with Disney concluded, he began auditioning for television and movies roles, and was soon cast in both mediums. Kolton is best known for his starring role as Jarvis Raines on YTV's "Some Assembly Required" and for his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2012, which helped launch his music career. Whether it is singing, dancing, playing an instrument, or acting, Kolton is passionate about his artistry as a performer. “I knew as soon as I stepped on stage that I was hooked for life,” he said.
