Will Parker - Oklahoma!
Welcome to SC Will! How are you preparing for your role this summer?
Aside from learning more about choices different actors have made in regards to how to portray his character, I'm looking into a lot of old western movies with the aim of really getting down the way a feller would walk, or how he might say a certain word or phrase. I hope to breathe some life into Will Parker's role and add to the great work of those around me.
What other productions have you done recently?
Last year I was cast as Gilbert in the Chilliwack Players Guild's Anne of Green Gables. Before that I was part of the Wizard of Oz, Singin' in the Rain, and Legally Blonde trough Sardis Secondary, playing the Cowardly Lion, Don Lockwood, and Warner Huntington III respectively.
What are your plans for next year?
I will be continuing my studies at the University of Victoria. I'll be going into my 2nd year there in the faculty of Music Education with trombone as my major instrument. At UVic I am a member of the Chamber Singers, Wind Symphony, and I hope to be in either of the Jazz Choir or Jazz Band. However, I always keep my eyes out for theatrical opportunities; I only just missed out on Les Misérables out there since I had to move back to Chilliwack for the summer. Whatever the year holds, it should be fun!
