Welcome to Secondary Characters! What are you most looking forward to in your first role with SC?
I am really excited to work with the amazing team that has been assembled for this show! Adam is so prepared and seems to have a pretty clear vision for what he wants us to do, which is pretty great. I love to go further and deeper with a character, and I think he will really challenge us all to be our best. Nicola is top notch as well, and just take a look at the rest of the people behind the scenes! It's going to be great. I can't wait to see what they all come up with.
"I'm not good. I'm not nice. I'm just right." How do you think you are most like, or most unlike, the Witch?
It's really funny. I have been telling people about getting this role, and the most common response is, "OOoooh, you'll make a great witch!" Ha! I'm taking it as a compliment, because I think she's pretty kick ass. I mean, don't get me wrong, she has serious issues (don't we all), but she's not afraid to tell people how it is and what needs to be done. I'd like to think I'm like her in this way, but deep down, I'm a softie.
Tell us about the show you're currently involved with.
Twist my rubber arm! I recently directed "Anne of Green Gables the Musical" for The Chilliwack Players Guild. It's running at The Chilliwack Cultural Centre main stage right now! Our Family Night is sold out, but you can still get tickets for the weekend... wink, nudge. (Call 604-391-SHOW for tickets)
It's my first time directing a major musical, and it's been as rewarding as it has been challenging! I am so proud of my cast and crew, they are just killing it out there every night.
