Pursuit Fine Arts, Will’s 8th grade year….we worked on African theatre and Will played a Lion…That VOICE! Myself and our presenter were amazed that voice came from a 14 year old. Through these three years it has been fun working with and watching Will grown as an actor, singer and human. Looking at him, people could be intimidated, but shouldn’t be. Will is the sweetest person in the Fine Arts Wing. So, Here is William Toney!
1. What inspired your journey into the Arts?
I began performing in the arts, because I have always had a passion for singing. I figured, musicals involve singing, so I decided to try it out and the I have just enjoyed performing from that experience.
3. What are your funniest and worst experiences performing in front of an audience?
In 7th grade I had a solo at my school concert. When I went to sing, all the lyrics went blank from my head so I just stood there looking like a Baboon. I was so embarrassed!
