Area of Interest: Theater
When did you first get involved in theater?
In the summer of 2022.
What do you like most about theater?
I really enjoy working with all the kind people here, because it makes me feel welcome and like part of a community. I also really enjoy getting to help make the sets, seeing the end results is always worth it.
What has been your favorite experience related to theater so far?
Really just meeting everyone here. I’ve been able to meet so many new people and make many very good friends that I wouldn’t have met otherwise.
What’s something you hope to do/accomplish as a performer in the future?
I hope to eventually get out of my comfort zone and be in the cast of one of the plays.
What advice would you give to someone looking to get into theater?
Just go for it, ask your theater teacher, (or teachers). I’m sure everyone will be happy to meet you, and they will accept you fully.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I’m good at drawing and sewing.
What subject do you enjoy most in school?
Science, because I hope to someday be an archaeologist or paleontologist and they both use science, so it helps me prepare. Plus it’s just fun to learn about science.
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
When people over-sing happy birthday
What plans do you have for after you’ve finished school?
I plan to go to college so that I can pursue my dream of becoming an archaeologist or paleontologist
Do you have any pets?
I have a black lab named Storm.
If you could switch lives with anyone for a day, who would you choose?
My dog, that way I can understand her better and so that I can improve her happiness as much as I can.
What’s one skill you think everyone should have?
Common sense, because it would make everything much easier.
