How long have you been involved in theatre?
I was in my first show when I was eight years old. I was a child in Joseph…..And after that I continually wanted to perform whenever I had the chance. I was in a dance company for nine years after that, as well as doing community theatre, along with my singing, piano, and dance lessons. Now eleven years later I am attending The University of Oklahoma and getting a degree in Musical Theatre. Being on stage brings such a joy to me and I couldn’t possibly imagine myself in a different field of work.
How long have you been at Bigfork Summer Playhouse? This is my first year at Bigfork Summer Playhouse. I have been coming to Bigfork since I was a little girl and saw plays every summer. I thought this would be the perfect place to start my professional career.
What is your favorite thing to do in your “off” time while staying in Bigfork? I love just being with friends and embracing the nature that is around me. We are in such a beautiful place that needs to be taken advantage of. I love swimming and doing anything on the lake. Water skiing and wake surfing are my favorites, as well as being on a dock and getting ice-cream.
What else would you like to add? I would just like to say thank you to everyone in the BSP company and the people of Bigfork. This has already been one of the best experiences of my life.
