How long have you been in theatre?

I have been doing theatre for 14 years! I started when I was 8 at Marquee in a summer camp and fell in love!

I just graduated college for Musical Theatre so I am new in the industry! I also work part time at Stellar Lanes Bowling Alley as well.

Why do you do community theatre?

Community theatre always brings me so much joy and lets me continue to gain experience with new creative teams and people! It always reminds me how much I love theatre and meeting new people!

What’s your favourite moment/song in this show – without giving too much away? Why?

One of my favourite songs/moment is I Want It All! Shannon and JC are amazing together and I love watching them. Near the end of the song everyone feels so together when we’re all on stage. It’s an amazing feeling!

Do you have an rituals that you do to help you to prepare before you perform?

Usually a ritual I have is doing my own personal stretch warm up while doing a vocal warm up. I always take that time to focus and think about what i need to do for that show.

I have loved being able to work with Marquee again they have always felt like a second home to me! They put on beautiful and professional level shows! They encourage everyone to do their best!
