Jake Lohrke – Musical Q&A

Jake Lohrke

Role: Seymour

What are you most excited about?

“Well, when I first started, I was most excited about meeting the cast. But now, it’s about presenting what we’ve created. I’m really excited to sing in front of the whole school, whew.”
What makes you fit your role so well?
“That’s a harder one. I personally don’t know, but I’ve been told that as a person I act a lot like Seymour.”

“I can’t believe how much I’ve grown since I got that part.””

— Jake Lohrke

What is your favorite part about being involved in musical?

“The people. Everybody says it, and I’m gonna say it too. Hanging out with the cast everyday is amazing, and I’ve made so many new friends.”

What should the audience be excited for?

“I’d definitely say the music. The music is very fun, it’s kind of rocky but also has some funk in it. I love the music, and I think other people will too.”

What is your favorite part of your role?

“For one, I like acting like somebody I’m not. Also, some of the songs Seymour sings are so hilariously fun, it’s great to get up onstage and sing them, so far… to the cast.”

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

“I did marching band, last year I was in Model UN, and I do robotics. I’m also in jazz and concert band.”

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

“Oh, yes, so much. Theater, [these] past couple months, has helped me become a more confident person onstage. It taught me how to act, dance, sing; I’ve met so many new friends. I can’t believe how much I’ve grown since I got that part.”
