1.) What are you most excited about?
“I am most excited about doing a show that this community has never seen before due to the uniqueness, humor, and difficulty of the show.”
2.) What makes you fit your role so well?
“My character is younger and a bit ditsy, which is very effortless and simple for me to portray because it is very fun to project a completely different persona.”
3.) What is your favorite part about being involved in the play?
“My favorite part about being in the play is that I am able to be a completely different person on stage and run away from reality and take my audience with me without leaving the FHC auditorium. It truly is a gift to be able to take people away from real life for a couple hours and completely submerge them in the show and the characters.”
4.) What should the audience be excited about?
“The audience should be excited about enjoying a humorous and edgier show. It will definitely be of interest to teenagers when it comes to the content and all the action that goes with it.”
5.) What is your favorite part of your role?
“My favorite part is that I get to be ditsy and pretend to be a bad actress, which is actually quite a challenge and so fun to portray.”
6.) What difference does your character have that you’ve had to work through?
“My character’s motives and personality was definitely a challenge at first, but once I discovered more about my character, it became easier and more enjoyable.”
7.) Do you think theater has affected your overall high school experience? Why or why not?
“Without theater in my life, I would not be the woman I am today. This program has shaped me and allowed me to project and use my creativity to hold an audience in the palm of my hand and learn a deeper meaning to acting and the essence of a story.”
8.) Is there anything else you would like to add?
“Make sure to come and see the show! You will be pleasantly surprised when you leave with a laugh-induced belly ache and a satisfied brain.”
