Was this your first audition? If yes or no, how was it? What did you have to do?
No. It was much more fun then most auditions I’ve been to.
How did you get started in theatre?
I started in my first musical when I was ten and kept pressuring theater through middle school and high school.
What makes you want to act?
The fact that people are affected by theater, by the entertainment Industry in general, and as an actor we have the opportunity and privliage to either effect people positively or negatively. I act to positively effect people’s lives.
Do you have any advice for kids thinking about auditioning for their first play?
Be brave! Not everything in life will work out the way you want it to, but don’t let the fear of failing keep you from your dreams!
How have rehearsals been going?
Great! I’ve learned lots of different parts about theater and putting on a big production like this and I love all my fellow actors and actresses.
