What role are you playing, and how have you trained for the role?
I am playing Elle Woods in this year’s Pinewood Bowl, Inc. production of Legally Blonde. As far as training goes, I’m about to be a senior at Oklahoma City University where I am working toward a Bachelor of Music with an emphasis in Music Theatre.
Why do you like about the show, and what will fans likes about the show?
I love Legally Blonde because it is upbeat and fun while still delivering an important message. I am so honored to be portraying such a powerful and intelligent woman. Legally Blonde has something for everyone and I guarantee that you will leave feeling inspired.
What is it about being on stage that gives you energy?
There’s nothing quite like being onstage at a venue like Pinewood. Being able to connect with so many people through performing is what makes the arts so important. There is a power that comes from being onstage that is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.
What stands out about what you learned in theater at Pius X?
I owe so much of who I am to the Theatre department at Pius. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be where I am today if it hadn’t been for the relationships I built and opportunities I was given in high school. I’m so thankful for my four years of performing at Pius.
