I first started doing theatre completely by accident. I was on my way to tennis practice and my friend told me that she would not audition for the spring musical unless I did too. I auditioned and just happened to get cast and I have been doing it ever since. I have done several shows for my community theatre back home and am currently enrolled in Florida State University working towards receiving my Bachelor of Music in Music Theatre.
How long have you been at Bigfork Summer Playhouse?
This is my first season with Bigfork Summer Playhouse. I have been interested in working at the theatre for a long time; since I first met everyone at SETC 3 years ago. I was so ecstatic when I received the call and I could hardly believe that I was going to be able to play one of my dreams roles, Bernardo!
I am looking forward to going to Glacier National Park! Florida is very flat and, in fact, this is my first time seeing mountains. I am constantly blown away by the beauty of the landscape even on our company outings to the grocery store. Everyone keeps saying, “You think this is pretty, wait til you see Glacier.” I really can’t wait!
What are your plans after the BFSP season ends?
I will be returning to Florida State University to finish my final year as a student and then I will see what is next for me!
