Describe a memorable theatrical experience you had as a child.
A memorable experience of theatre as a child was when I came to the Sanderson Center in my hometown, Brantford, and watched the play Robinson Crusoe, I was so astounded by the vastness of the theater and the famous painting of a centaur playing a flute with 3 or 4 fairies dancing around. I was so blown away with the beauty of the place I couldn’t believe a small theatre on the outside could hold a huge stage on the inside.
Why are you taking The Shakespeare Challenge?
I have joined the Shakespeare Challenge because I wanted to take my acting passions a step further and surround myself with people with the same passion as I do. I wanted to gain more experience with acting and know people who are in the industry. A good bonus was the fundraising to help other youth have the chance to experience theater as well.
What’s your favourite sweet treat?
I LOVE crème brûlée and red velvet cake!
