How is this production bringing something new to this story?
Our cast is a group of bright talented individuals who are bringing their own vision to their characters

What’s going to surprise people about this show?
My character’s observational skills… they are absolutely horrid.

Call someone out by name: who must come see this production?
CAITLIN SCHAFER…you know who you are…

How is this character like you? Different?
Like me, my character is sensitive, clever, well-mannered, considerate charming, as kind as I’m handsome but I would say I am more loyal.

What do you love about this character? His arrogance.

What do you hate about this character? His arrogance.

What’s the biggest challenge about taking on this role?
Playing a “love interest”. It’s new for me.

Besides yourself, what celebrity would you like to see tackle this character?
Hugh Jackman. Hands down.

If you could play any other character in this show, who would it be?
Milky white. Or The Baker

When did you first perform? Middle School. I was a squirrel

Who do you look up to (as an actor/director/etc.)?
Once again, I’d have to say Hugh Jackman. He’s everything I’d ever want to be as an actor.

What’s your perfect Sunday afternoon look like?
Napping on the beach

What do you do when you’re not doing theatre?
Work, mostly. I have two jobs and I go to school so I’m usually pretty busy

If you had a magic wand, what show would you do next?
Phantom or Les Miserables

What’s the last thing you do before you step out on stage / the curtain goes up?
That bit is usually a blank for me. I think it’s the adrenaline.
