Fun & Games: The Theatre Tag

Fun & Games: The Theatre Tag

Sometimes when you’re strapped for inspiration (and you’re blogging late at night), it’s fun to complete a tag questionnaire! This one comes via Theatre Girl. I did another one back in November about musical theatre.

Completing a tag questionnaire could be a “great getting to know you” game with a new cast! Or, you could answer the questions anonymously, mix up the answers, read them out loud and guess which actor gave which answer!

So… on with the questions!

  1. When did you start getting into theatre?

I’ve been watching theatre since age 6, and I was in my first show in grade 2: The Little White Rabbit Who Wanted Red Wings. I played Mrs. Butterfly.

  1. How many shows have you been in?

At least 16.

  1. Favorite role ever played?

Sabine in Ken Ludwig’s The Three Musketeers. Second would probably be Macduff in that Scottish play.

  1. A tip you always give to new theatre kids?

Only do theatre if you really love it. Theatre is a big commitment.

That, and FACES!!! (Without a face, you’re just a person.)

  1. Biggest theatre pet peeves?

Actors talking while the director is trying to direct, and divas.

  1. Biggest strengths? Biggest weaknesses?

Strengths: Stage combat skills; I learn choreography quickly; I look younger than I am; good projection skills
Weaknesses: No vocal training; highly unlikely to play ingenue roles; takes me a while to memorize lines

  1. Who is your biggest inspiration in theatre?

I’m inspired by anyone who you can tell truly loves and enjoys what they’re doing. (What a cop-out answer, eh?)

  1. What’s your dream role?

Extraordinary Girl in American Idiot, Wednesday in The Addams Family, Molly Astor in Peter and the Starcatcher.

  1. Plays or musicals?


  1. Favorite improv game?

Scenes from a Hat. (Worst improv game? Park Bench.)

  1. What’s your favorite show?

Peter and the Starcatcher (play), American Idiot (musical).

  1. Most awkward onstage moment?

Stripping on stage in The Rocky Horror Show with four of my Original Kids in the front row.

  1. Best off stage moment?

Meeting my husband at a cast party.

  1. Most challenging role to play?

Probably performing in White Rabbit, Red Rabbit… a solo show where you don’t get the script until you step onstage to perform!

  1. What would you do if theatre didn’t exist?
