Caroline Whyte – Musical Q&A


Caroline Whyte

Role: Audrey

What are you most excited about?

“I am really excited to get to know the cast and crew really well and to share this show with the public!”

What makes you fit your role so well?

“Audrey is a really kind and insecure girl, and capturing her essence is very difficult, but I have gotten to know her as a character over the past month. I think I’ve figured out how to develop her as a character throughout the story, and to make her less one-sided and more dynamic.”

What is your favorite part about being involved in musical?

“It’s so hard to choose, but my favorite part about being in the musical might have to be all of the friendships that grow from it! The cast and crew are some of the most hardworking and loving individuals I’ve ever met.”

What should the audience be excited for?

The audience should be excited for a show that differs from the idea of a “typical high school musical”. It is filled with, as Mitchell Banks says, “Blood, Love, and Photosynthesis”.

What is your favorite part of your role?

“My favorite part about Audrey is how she develops as a girl throughout the show. She begins to realize her self-worth, and she grows stronger. She’s much more than what meets the eye.”

What similarities are there between you and your character?

“I think many younger girls in their formative years can relate to Audrey to some extent. She has big dreams of a stable and happy future and wants to work toward that goal. I think her want to be appreciated and loved is relatable as well, as many people want to be accepted and treated well by others.”

What other activities/clubs do you participate in besides theater?

“I do not play any sports, but I did start the Animal Advocacy Club last year. However, Ms. Hartsoe, our supervisor retired so I’ve been trying to start it back up this semester with another supervisor.”

Do you think theater has affected your overall high school experience? Why or why not?

“Theatre has definitely changed and shaped my high school experience for the better. I’ve made so many amazing friends and have had so many great memories, and I’m looking forward to many more this musical season! It’s truly such a loving environment that has been beneficial to my high school years as a whole!”
