How long have you been involved in theatre?
Well, I have been dancing since I was three years old. When I was a few years older I watched a professional production of The Nutcracker and the magic between the dancing and acting changed my whole perspective. I told my mom that I wanted to do that for the rest of my life. So she graciously helped me audition for shows throughout the area as well as Louisville’s performing arts high school. Fortunately, from there on out, theatre became my main focus.
How long have you been at Bigfork Summer Playhouse?
This is my first season with Bigfork Summer Playhouse! And I am so grateful to be a part of this company. I had auditioned for the South Eastern Theatre Conference and BSP was a company I immediately fell in love with when I had the chance to meet them. I was ecstatic when I got the call from them the next day! It was no choice on whether or not I joined them this summer — it was a must.
What is your favorite thing to do in your “off” time while staying in Bigfork?
Well, time off is pretty sacred so usually I like to enjoy the outdoors in anyway possible. This part of the country is so beautiful.
