Callum Ovens

Callum Ovens

Name: Callum Ovens

Grade: 12

Role: Hobart Kemp

1. What are you most excited about?
” I am most excited to see how this all comes together. I have no doubt it will be fantastic, but the anticipation of that final day is killing me!”
2. What makes you fit your role so well?
“I fit my role so well because I’m a bit of a goof in real life, making me a shoe-in for lovable jokester types like Hobart.”
3. What is your favorite thing about being involved in the play?
“I love to hang out with the people I know from previous productions and to meet new people involved with them. Just like any other extracurricular, the people in theater have really become something like a family.”
4. What is the cast dynamic and relationship like?
“Like I said, something like a family. It feels like everyone belongs there, like we can all go there and have a place of our own.”
5. What is your favorite part about your role?
“My favorite part about my role is a fun piece of movement that I get to do with Howie, but I won’t spoil what that is. You’ll have to see the show to find out!”
6. What have been some difficulties with your role or in rehearsal?
“I’ve been paraphrasing my lines frequently. I hate to say it, but a lot of the lines in the script don’t flow like I want them to. I haven’t changed them up too much, but having to remember all the changes in punctuation and slightly different word choices is exhausting. That’s all kind of my fault though, to be honest.”
7. How has this experience affected you and your high school experience?
“My grades have certainly been affected! Jokes aside though, it’s really made my high-school life so much more fulfilling. I wouldn’t have met my best friend without it, and I wouldn’t be having nearly as much fun!”
8. What should audiences be excited about?
“Audiences should be excited for a heartfelt show about growing up. It features all the joys and wonders of childhood, with a few of the less enjoyable parts mixed in. When you watch this show, you’ll remember a simpler time when you were three feet tall and couldn’t read.”
