My Theatre Experience

IMG_1572When I was three years old, I told my mom I wanted to be an actor. No one would believe me if I said that nineteen years later, I would still have that passion. The first live musical I saw was an elementary school production of The Sound of Music, which my cousins were in, and I knew that I wanted to be in a musical too. I then attended Orange Grove Middle School of the Arts and Howard W. Blake High School of the Arts and did different aspects of theatre from set crew, stage manager, assistant director, and performing. Some of my favorite roles were Hairspray (Edna IMG_1538Turnblad), Cats (Bustopher Jones), and Les Miserables  (Pimp). I continued to do theatre in college, however since it wasn’t my major, it has not been my focus. Yet, there is still apart of me who wants to continue this passion. I also love seeing shows as much as I love to be in them. I am exited to share my experiences as an audience member and a performer with you!

  1. I first saw musicals in elementary school, but don’t remember which one was my first.

    My first memory of seeing one was at age 12 seeing Wicked on Broadway. That show sparked my love for musicals. All because of Wicked, I began to understand the emotional and complex side of musicals.

    Through the Les Mis movie, my love of musicals was turned into a passion. I began to understand emotions on a side of musicals I never knew existed.

    Other musicals I love include Sound of Music, Annie, Phantom of the Opera, Pippin, Rent, South Pacific, Beauty and the Beast, Newsies, Music Man, and Grease among others.

    1. Aww yes! When I saw the film version of Les Mis I know I had to do the show, and my school did it that spring! I just saw Hello, Dolly! in NYC and I knew I had to be in this community!!
