Irene Skidmore - Oklahoma!
How did you get involved with Secondary Characters this year?
I was finally free to audition!
How are you preparing for your role? What have you found challenging?
I prepared for my role by practicing my gun slinging. I've found it challenging to be a farmer, when I don't live on a farm.
How do you find working on the dialect? What’s your favourite line of dialogue?
I found the dialect came quite naturally, and I'm having troubles talking normally when I'm not in character. My favourite line is: "You feeble-minded shikepoke!"
How do you think you are like or unlike your character? If you could play any other character in this show, appropriate or not, which would it be and why?
Irene Skidmore is pretty much a Lone Ranger, I like to think of myself the same way. I would play Jud, just to see if I could be scary.
What are you plans for next year?
I plan on teaching voice at various music studios in Chilliwack and Abbotsford.
