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!
- 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.
- How many shows have you been in?
- Favorite role ever played?
Sabine in Ken Ludwig’s The Three Musketeers. Second would probably be Macduff in that Scottish play.
- 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.)
- Biggest theatre pet peeves?
Actors talking while the director is trying to direct, and divas.
- 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
- 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?)
- What’s your dream role?
Extraordinary Girl in American Idiot, Wednesday in The Addams Family, Molly Astor in Peter and the Starcatcher.
- Plays or musicals?
- Favorite improv game?
Scenes from a Hat. (Worst improv game? Park Bench.)
- What’s your favorite show?
Peter and the Starcatcher (play), American Idiot (musical).
- Most awkward onstage moment?
Stripping on stage in The Rocky Horror Show with four of my Original Kids in the front row.
- Best off stage moment?
Meeting my husband at a cast party.
- 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!
- What would you do if theatre didn’t exist?
