Q – How long have you been involved in theater?
I have been auditioning for theatrical productions since I was in 5th grade, so 17 years. My first role was as Muff Potter in Tom Sawyer.
Q – What are some of your favorite recent productions?
A few of my favorite roles are Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream with Seven Stages Shakespeare Company, Ensemble in Sweeney Todd at Seacoast Repertory Theatre, Rhonda in Sharp Dressed Men, Edith in Blithe Spirit with New Hampshire Theatre Project, Alice in Closer and Callie in Stop Kiss, both at Players’ Ring.
Q – Have you performed in the Vagina Monologues before?
Yes, two years ago I performed the monologue I am reprising this year: Because He Liked To Look At It
Q – What made you want to be involved in V-Day this year?
This show creates a certain kind of community among its participants. I also believe it is important to educate and build up women’s sense of self and confidence. I believe this show accomplishes that.
Q – Who is the most influential woman in your life?
My mother is the most influential woman in my life. She is selfless and is an amazing problem solver who shares her talents with everyone she meets. She was selling a walker online and when she went to drop it off at the buy’s home, she saw that the walker she had was really too large for this man, so she voluntarily searched different venues to find one more appropriately sized.
Q – What or who inspires you?
Kindness, joy, sincerity, and creativity inspire me. When I see these in people or art, I feel inspired.
