TSR: What’s your role in our production of WAPAJ?
ES: Abigail, the prophetess// child-wonder
TSR: Tell us the story of how you first got involved in the theatre.
ES: I wanted so badly to be in a production of Annie when I was in second grade, but I was too young. Instead I had to be in the Christmas Pageant as "Sock-Hop Mrs. Claus." It was a silent role. I cannot sing, but I thought I could if only I could have the opportunity to shine, so after my military dad made us move in fifth grade, I brashly auditioned for Oliver (the kids' version) and got the title part because I was missing teeth (and it was the only part that did not involve singing).
TSR: What’s your funniest memory from High School?
ES: For my best friend's birthday, she decided we would prank call people we didn't like. Real mature, I know. We called mean jocks and her buds from California, and had an hour long conversation about the pancake people (people made out of pancakes). I was quite the nerd, so the concept of "hanging out" was fun, exciting, and new. I think I peed my pants a little I was laughing so hard.
TSR: What would you be a Patron Saint of?
ES: Either Lactose-Intolerance or Oatmeal
TSR: Why should we see this play?
ES: Because all these ladies are badass, and you bet you should support them!
