Grace Bobber….Bobber Bobber Bobber. So, as with all the sophomore actors, I first saw them via my mothers program and she performances. Some I physically worked with, while others I just watched the talent oozing from them. Grace is one of those people. I came to know who she was through her sister Meri, so the picture that was painted was a whiny younger sister in middle school (Don’t worry, I know how sisters work). Anyway, it’s been interesting working with Grace these past two years, mainly this year for the acting and character building. So, let me introduce you to Grace Bobber a Sophomore here at HHS, you will be seeing a lot more of her in the next two years.
1. What inspired your journey into the Arts?
My parents, who met in a show when they were my age, and my older sister
3. What are your funniest and worst experiences performing in front of an audience?
Funniest – my woolens stick like fell apart on stage during Brigadoon but I was leading this line of dancers so everyone had to suddenly stop for me
Worst – burned myself when lighting some candles in Fiddler on the Roof, see Brigadoon experience above
4. If you had a chance to work with anyone of your choosing, who would it be?
Love Samantha Barks and Idina Menzel
5. What are you most proud of and what dreams or goals would you like to fulfill?
Most proud of Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors and the work I have done in Seminar, because it’s my first play ever! Hope to study musical theater in college and go from there
6. What do you want to do After High School? Do you have any dreams or hopes for the Future? Do you know where you are going to school?
As of now, ideally I’d like to go to college out East, mostly looking in New York. Still have some time though. Would love to study musical theater and then audition for anything and everything. Dream show is Wicked
7. Which three famous people would you invite to dinner and why [dead celebrities included]? And what tasty treat would you prepare?
Harry Truman, learning about him in World Studies right now and Ciurlik would just be much more impressed with Truman’s take on things than my take on things leading up to the Cold War and such. Josh Hutcherson and Anne Hathaway seem great. If I could make cake like my grandma does, that would be on the menu
8. What is your favorite genre of music? Why?
Not a big fan of country or the commonly women-degrading music Andrew Minkin plays in his car. Depends on my mood, some days techno and pop stuff works and others it’s more contemporary folk
9. Have you read any plays lately? What are your favorite?
No, I really should though
10. Tell us 5 interesting and unknown facts about yourself!
a) As much as I love Les Mis, the story, the musical, and the movie, I cannot get myself to read the book.
b) One day during this tri I accidentally started to go to my second tri classes. This was like last week.
c) I dislike most poetry because I feel like the ability to write poetry is in everyone. That doesn’t make it less significant, but I don’t understand why some poetry is then considered stronger or becomes more popular/known.
d) Each new year I make a resolution to not bite my nails and the resolution always fails within the first day.
e) I hate when people click their pen, yet I do it all the time when I’m nervous
