Michelle Blouin-Wright

Q – How long have you been involved in theater?

I’ve been actively involved in theater since 2011. I started off as a stage manager. Then I decided to test the waters in acting. I love both stage managing and acting. To the point where from time to time you will catch me doing both in a production!

Q – What are some of your favorite recent productions?

Ah, this is a tough one. However, if I had to pick a few favorites I would choose DARWiNS WAiTiNG ROOM, Background Check and original play by G. Matthew Gaskell, and the 2014 A Christmas Carol (all at the Player’s Ring).

Q – Have you performed in the Vagina Monologues before?

I have not. I’ve seen it several times, though, this will be my first time performing in it.

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

It is something that I‘ve wanted to be a part of for quite some time, though, due to scheduling conflicts I haven’t been able to. This year, my priority was to be the first person to sign up for auditions, and I was!

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

My mother for sure is the most influential woman in my life. She was one of the wisest and most compassionate people I will ever know. Her words of wisdom, guidance and encouragement, to this day (she is no longer with us), help me strive to be the best person I can be.

Q – What or who inspires you?

Life inspires me. The “not knowing” of what can happen each day, though scary, is exciting.
