I’m one of the actors in Robin Hood and I play Little John. One thing about rehearsals is to see everyone have fun while making this story become a reality. I got into theatre my junior year, I auditioned for last year’s fall play Alice in Wonderland and I stayed because I’ve never had so much fun while actually doing work on a show. The actors plus stage crew are so nice and accepting.
The funniest memory that I have is during the musical last year. I kept flipping my wig back and forth and strutting in my shiny golden jacket. Everyone got a kick out of that, mostly because I reminded them of Foxxy Cleopatra from Austin Powers lol. My first memory of the HHS Theatre was the black box, because when I first stepped foot in there I thought ‘This is where all the magic begins’.
The most important person in my life is my dad because he encourages me in whatever I do. Every time I tell him something that I’ve accomplished I just love seeing him smile. He knows I’m doing well and I want to make him proud. The one thing he said to me that I will always remember is ‘Your the only one of my children that loves the arts and I look forward to witness what your going to become, I believe that you’re going to go far in life’.
What do I want to be when I grow up? I can actually see myself on stage for the rest of my life for music and theatre I just love to entertain I really believe that I will make something out of myself in this world.
