What drew you to work on this show?
I love signing, dancing and acting and this was an opportunity to be involved in a great show.
What is your past experience with theatre, and what has been your favourite previous project?
I have been involved in music theatre for three years now doing shows with Lighthouse Theatre, Theatre in the Country and Odeum Theatre Society. My favourite roles to date include Jemima Potts (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), Annie (Annie Jr.) and Jane Banks (Mary Poppins).
Who is your favourite character from The Wizard of Oz and why?
My favorite Wizard of Oz character is the Wicked Witch of the West. She is a magical villain, full of wickedness and she always has me wondering as she leaves the stage.
What was your first show ever?
My first show was Annie Jr. and I was thrilled to play the role of Annie.
What was your primary introduction to the story of The Wizard of Oz, the movie, or the books? And what is your memory of your first impression of the story?
I first saw the movie when I was quite little. It was a bit scary but I liked the suspense.
What is the most exciting element of this story for you?
This is the first show I have done where I don't have any lines (seeing as I am a dog). It is fun bringing my character to life using only facial expressions and gestures. One of my favorite songs is "If I Only Had a Brain," and I love the Jitterbug.
How long have you been working in your field for?
I have been involved in music theatre for 3 years now. I was 8 years old when I did my first show.
What is your favourite musical of all time, and why?
My favorite musical is Mamma Mia. I really love all of the songs. They are full of energy and make me want to dance.
