Have you been in any past shows?
Yes, three in high school. Thoroughly Modern Millie (Miss Dorothy), In the Heights (Carla), and Legally Blonde: The Musical (Pilar).
What do you love about theatre? What made you interested in auditioning for this show?
I love the rush right before stepping on stage. I kind of feel like screaming, kind of feel like vomiting, but it's amazing. I like getting to be someone else! One of my high school acting teachers (Sheri Eyre) recommended auditioning because she thought I'd love the show and the sense of community.
What are your future theatrical plans?
I plan on majoring in theatre at UBC in Fall 2017. I'd like to be an elementary school teacher that specializes in fine arts. I think it would be really good for the kids of the future.
Do you have any musical theatre icons?
I really love Stephen Sondheim because he was the lyricist and composer for one of my favourite musicals: Sweeney Todd. Also Alan Menken because Disney movies were such a huge part of my childhood (especially Beauty and the Beast, obviously). I have others like Sutton Foster and Michael Rupert but for less specific reasons: they always play awesome characters.
