1. What was your first show ever?
My first musical was in high school, as a chorus member/napkin/villager in Beauty and the Beast!
2. What is your past experience with theatre, and what has been your favourite previous project?
I started performing as a ballerina at the age of 6, but made the switch to theatre when I started high school. My favourite project to date was performing in the title role (Cinderella) of the new musical UGLY: The Other, Other Cinderella Story. As a recent graduate of the UFV Theatre Program, I could not think of a better way to start off my "adult" life than playing the Cowardly Lion!
3. What is the most exciting element of this story for you?
For me, the most exciting element of the story is seeing the changes that occur in all of the characters, and how these changes translate to their "real" selves upon Dorothy's return to Kansas. Even though the wizard is revealed as a phony, he passes on some excellent wisdom to the four heroes that allow them to grow as individuals. Take note, kids - you had it in ya all along!
