Why did you want to be involved in this production?
I actually know nothing about the show, but I love working with Dawn and the cast can’t be beat. They are so funny in real life so I know they will be amazing on stage together. Besides, rehearsals are a good ab workout from laughing.

Call someone out by name: who must come see this production?
Rhona Kershnar and the MTV JCS Cast!

Who in the show is most like their character?
Parker Griffin – Being a dancer helps him bring the character to life on stage. He channels his inner diva dancer at all the right times.

Who’s the least?
Rebecca Rubino – She is nothing like her character in real life but on stage you would never know. She is soft-spoken and has a gentle spirit that you won’t see as Sister Robert Anne

What do you want to be when you grow up?
Still working on that…but, I live and breathe theater so something in that realm.

If someone was going to make your life into a movie, who would play you?
Amy Adams

Besides this one, what’s your favorite stage show?
I don’t have one favorite, but some of my top choices are Shrek, Thoroughly Modern Mille, and Singing in the Rain.

What’s your perfect Sunday afternoon look like?
Sleeping in then going to see a show and afterwards hanging out with my theater family.

When you have a five-minute break during rehearsal, what do you spend that time doing?
Drink water and go pee, but not at the same time, of course.

Who’s the funniest person in the cast in real life?
Roger – he is good at playing off of what everyone else is saying. He is the silent one that sneaks ups on you and then you never stop laughing. Alex – he has the best one liners…combined, you get the best ab workout. “FOOLS!!!”

What do you do when you’re not doing theatre?
I am always doing theater! Occasionally, I sleep and eat…and when necessary homework.

If you had a magic wand, what show would you do next?
Thoroughly Modern Mille or Anything Goes
