What is your cast role or crew position in Disney’s NEWSIES? Nun

What is your favorite Disney’s NEWSIES quote, song or scene — and why? My all time favorite scene in NEWSIES is when Jack and Katherine are sitting in Medda’s Theatre and Jack is drawing Katherine and singing to himself about her. It’s when he truly realizes that he is falling in love with Katherine.

Do you have a favorite story from your time spent in theatre? My favorite story would have to be the first time I stepped on stage in front of a live audience. It was so different than stepping onto a softball field. It was pretty nerve racking and a huge rush, but the way it made me feel was a feeling I will never forget.

What are your plans after high school? My plans after high school is attending Hanover College in the fall, playing softball for the Panthers, and studying Pre-Veterinary Medicine.

What words of advice do you have for those thinking about joining Gibson Southern Theatre? Do not wait until the last minute. Join as soon as you can and enjoy your experience. For me, I waited until my junior year to be involved. Please try it even though you think you can not, because you can!

Do you have anything else to add? Please join as many things as you can at Gibson Southern, including the Theatre Club. Coming from a senior, do it before it’s too late because four years fly by in a blink of an eye!
