CRESTVIEW — The Orlando Sentinel's drama critic wasn't overly impressed with the University of Central Florida's recent production of Steve Martin's comedy, "The Underpants."

Except for one performance, by a Crestview High School alumnus who is pursuing is bachelor's in fine arts in theater at the university.

"Only Jesse Hinton, who gave a solid dramatic performance in last season's 'Good Boys and True,' gets a chance to shine," Matt Palm wrote.

"It's the type of flamboyant farcical role ... that requires an actor to dive in without fear. Hinton does just that and deservedly scores the night's biggest laughs."

Leading man

The 2011 CHS grad, who had previously stamped his talent for character acting on his hometown audiences, started snaring lead roles almost upon arrival on the Theatre UCF stage.
