Q – How long have you been involved in theater?

That’s hard to answer. I’ve been performing in front of people since 1999… but I started with campfire skits, storytelling and weird plays after lunch to encourage kids to compost at science camp.

Q – What are some of your favorite recent productions?

I Could Just Diary 2 & 3 at Seacoast Rep were ridiculously fun and such a great way to step out of my comfort zone. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time!!

Q – Have you performed in the Vagina Monologues before?

Yes! I was in the sextet last year and am excited to reprise my role and get to know a new fabulous 5.

Q – What made you want to be involved in V-Day this year?

As an educator for SASS I get the opportunity to go into schools on a daily basis and talk to kids and teenagers about some very important topics. I am always excited for opportunities to reach a new audience and spread the SASS love a little further.

Q – Who is the most influential woman in your life?

My mom – hands down.

Q – What or who inspires you?

Silliness, time with friends and my crazy family, bad puns, vintage clothing and the thrill of the hunt, laughter, puppets, puppets and more puppets.

…Speaking of Puppets, here’s what Zoe had to say:

Q – How long have you been involved in theater?

Well – we don’t have a large stage or pretty red curtains…but I still think that I do theater every day! I have been in shows at elementary schools teaching kids about keeping their bodies safe for the past two years. If you think that’s a lot – my co-workers have been doing it for like 25 years. That’s crazy long!

Q – What are some of your favorite recent productions?

Sesame Street on Ice.

Q – Have you performed in the Vagina Monologues before?

YES!!! I was part of the sextet last year and it is SO RAD that I was invited to do it again. Yay me!!!

Q – What made you want to be involved in V-Day this year?

Are you kidding me? Why wouldn’t I want to be involved?! First of all – this show ROCKS!! Also – I would shout from the highest rooftop about what I do and how important it is if I could…but since I can’t, I guess being on stage in front of like a gazillion people is a good way to get the word out.

Q – Who is the most influential woman in your life?

I can’t pick one because all the ladies who work at SASS and A Safe Place are amazing. They change people’s lives. You don’t get much more influential than that!!

Q – What or who inspires you?

Rainbows, unicorns, smiles, the color pink, The Muppets, hugs, and anything glittery.
