I am an MT student at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA.
I just want to be happy. Right now my happiness lies in theater so I anticipate always being connected to it.
While playing Grace Farrell, I came out for a scene with Daddy Warbucks (Ryan) where we had to tell Annie that we had no idea who her parents were. While blocking, Jennifer suggested we try coming out with his arm around me. I think it took everyone’s willpower not to bust out laughing when we strutted onstage and Ryan said his line, “We’ve been up all night…” creating a very suggestive circumstance. Needless to say although we all know how Jenn loves to play up the sex appeal... it did not belong in a junior production. We changed the blocking back but for the moment it was great, who doesn’t love a giggle?
I must credit Jennifer and Peter Jones for teaching and enforcing professional work ethics that serve me in all aspects of my life. More than that, Starstruck has been a center that has fostered much creative work and lifelong friendships.
