How did you become interested in theater?
I got involved in theatre because track practice was canceled due to rain. I was in high school and just roaming the halls my freshman year. I happened to walk up on auditions happening in the theatre room. The teacher/director encouraged me to audition, so I did. I didn’t get the part originally, but the actor who did get it had a falling out with the teacher. So, I replaced him and ended up really loving it. The rest is history.
What have you learned from being involved in theater?
The biggest thing I’ve learned from theatre is the collaborative nature of a team. It takes so many people to make a theatre production happen. Truly, actors are so low on the priority list. The director, writer, designers, tech folks, etc. It’s such a nebulous and beautiful thing the way numerous people from numerous places can come together to create one story. It’s pretty special.
