Today’s cast feature showcases Olivia Witt from Bigfork, Montana! Olivia is an alum of the Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theatre and is back for a second year as actress / intern at the Bigfork Summer Playhouse.
What role(s) do you play at the BSP?
I play Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre, a politically-minded, 10 year old speller with a lisp who has two gay dads in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
How long have you been involved in theatre?
I have been involved since 2nd grade (11 years) with the Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theatre. There was a handout in the Thursday Folders at my elementary school. My mom was in the mood to sign me up for everything. The BPCT ended up as home away from home for many years!
How long have you been at Bigfork Summer Playhouse?
Although this is my second year as an actor intern, my first summer was in fourth grade when I was one of the children in the King and I.
What else would you like to add?
I attended Bigfork High School and graduated this year (2013) as valedictorian. I have also competed in Speech and Drama and won two state championships in the Humorous Duo category. I have lived in Bigfork for 12 years and will miss it terribly when I go off to college in the fall.
