Early career

An early start as a stage actor in his childhood with the Belfry Theatre,[2] Bastion Theatre[3] and Phoenix Theatre[4] in his native Victoria, BC, led to being cast in Paul Almond's 1983 film Ups and Downs alongside classmate Leslie Hope which was filmed at their high school, St Michaels University School.[5] He soon landed a starring role on the multiple award-winning Disney Channel/CBC television series The Edison Twins which ran for six seasons, was widely syndicated and earned him a Young Artist Award nomination for Best Young Actor in a Cable Family Series.[6] Andrew Sabiston's first writing credit (Story Idea by) was for the Home Sweet Home episode of The Edison Twins, which aired in 1984.

Other film and television roles included starring in Paul Saltzman’s coming-of-age film When We First Met opposite Amy Linker in 1984,[7] guest starring on MacGyver in 1987 (Hell Week; Season 3, Episode 9) alongside John Cameron Mitchell and appearing as a juror in the 1994 thriller Trial by Jury starring Gabriel Byrne, Armand Assante and Joanne Whalley.

In 2009, a new version was first presented in concert at Talk Is Free Theatre in Barrie, Ontario[10][11] under the direction of Richard Ouzounian. This marked the beginning of a reimagining of the musical as an intimate, behind-the-scenes political drama with a cast half the size of the original productions and a new book and musical numbers. The new Napoleon debuted at the New York Musical Theatre Festival in July 2015.[12]

In July 2017, a generous new production opened at the Charlotte Theatre in Seoul for a limited three-month run. It featured a cast of 54 including K-pop artists B.A.P's Daehyun and BtoB's Changsub alongside famous musical actors such as Im Tae-kyung, Michael K. Lee, and Han Ji-sang. It was directed by Richard Ouzounian and presented in Korean.[13]
