Laurey - Oklahoma!
This is your third year now with Secondary Characters. Have you had a favourite production to work on?
I am so incredibly thrilled and honoured to be back for my third production with Secondary Characters this summer! I don't know if I could choose a favourite production between this, Into the Woods, and Joseph because they were all very different shows and all hold a special place in my heart. Each show taught me something new and different about performance, and the fact that every year I find myself being pushed to my limits and to be my best in either acting, dance, or music is what I love about Secondary Characters.
So far, what do you enjoy most about preparing for the role of Laurey?
Rehearsals for Oklahoma! have been such a blast, working with everyone has been such a pleasure! Preparing for Laurey has been exciting as I'm starting to make her my own and find myself within her. She has this wonderful sassiness and stubbornness within her that I love, but at the same time she has this almost secret sweet side, and it's been fun trying to open up to more of Laurey's sweetness. With Emily's beautiful staging and wonderful directing, Katrina's amazing choreography, as well as Nicola and Rebecca's beautiful music, they've made it easy for this show and its cast to come alive.
What are you plans for next year?
Next year I will be studying Theatre and English at UFV, while continuing to be in as many productions as I possibly can!
