Glad to have you back Deanne. What are you most looking forward to in this production?
I'm so glad to be back! Last year's show (Joseph) was such an amazing experience, I'm so glad that I get to spend another summer with this fantastic company. I think the whole experience of working with such a talented cast will be amazing. I'm also very excited to start working with Adam and to see his vision for the show, I think that will be really fun. And of course working with the musical stylings of Nicola Davies is always great. But the part I am most looking forward to is the challenge of playing Rapunzel. She's unlike any character I've ever played, so this will be a great test of my acting abilities, and I can't wait to get started!
You’ve just finished up a show with the Player’s Guild. Tell us about that.
I was a part of The Chilliwack Player's Guild's production of Anne of Green Gables: The Musical playing the role of Lucilla, the General Store manager, and it has been such a blast! It's a really fun show, very sweet and light-hearted, and the cast and crew were amazing to work with. I love the fact that Emily (the director of Anne) is now going to be my mother in Into the Woods! Also that Tina (who plays Marilla in Anne) is *SPOILER ALERT* going to be the one who kills me in the show! It's going to be a little crazy going from one show right into the next, but I'm up for the challenge!
What are you up to next year?
The next year for me is still pretty uncertain, but I will definitely be continuing my studies in Musical Theatre, as well as being in as many shows as I can be in!
