What is your role in this production? I play Young Sally. She is a Weismann girl in the 1940’s. Throughout the show, she appears in memories and flashbacks. Young Sally is a bubbly, charming young girl. Through the memories we learn how Young Sally actions affect Sally as an older woman and how she deals with the choices she made.
What is your background in theatre? I have been performing since as long as I can remember! I am currently enrolled at Concordia and I’ve done a variety of performances in school and the Edmonton area. This will be my first Walterdale production and I’m so thrilled to be a part of it!
What brought you out for this show? I wasn’t originally a part of this production; I was brought on to play Young Sally in June. Learning this show in less than a month is a daunting task but I’m always up for a challenge!
This show is about theatre nostalgia… Got any good theatre stories? I think I come out of every show I do with some ridiculous stories. My personal favourite was on a show we did in December, when we had a sound cue that didn’t get played, but instead they played Jingle Bells! Very awkward 20 seconds on stage.
What has been the most challenging part of working on Follies? The most challenging part of doing this show for me was learning it so quickly! Because I was brought on late, I have quite a bit of catching up to do.
What has been the best thing about working on Follies? I haven’t been doing this show for long, but so far I’m loving the people. Everyone was so welcoming and supportive. This show is full of talent and I’m just happy to be a part of it!
