Meet the Artist: Sam McWilliams

4G7A9027Who do you play?
Rochefort, or Rochfart depending on what mood I’m in.

What’s challenging about bringing this script to life?
For me it’s all the fighting. I have a knee injury and some days after fighting I would limp home and ice it all night. It’s so much fun though so, oh well.

What will the audience be thinking about in the car as they drive home after this show?
Why did they let that girl have a sword, let alone with an eye patch on.

4G7A9143How is this production bringing something new to this story?
It has me dramatically dancing to Dancing Queen, I think that adds a lot. We also have a few characters who have switched genders. Makes my feminist heart proud to see a female leader of the musketeers.

Who in the show is most like their character?
David is so amazing at the king it blows me away every day. He is actually the king.

If you could play any other character in this show, who would it be?
One of Porthos wenches. It’s all I want in life

If someone was going to make your life into a movie, who would play you?
I don’t think anyone could play the strange character that is Samantha McWilliams.  I feel like if you spent a day as me you would go insane.

When did you first perform?
The first play/musical I did was in middle school. I made a wonderful woman #2 in “Music Man Jr”

When you have a five-minute break during rehearsal, what do you spend that time doing?
Joking around with the cast. I love the cast of this show so much. It really feels like a little family

If you had a magic wand, what show would you do next?
LEGALLY BLONDE!! I love the music in it. Any show with a song called “Gay or European” is a show I like

What’s your perfect Sunday afternoon look like?
I’m sitting in bed working on a drawing drinking a cup of coffee as its raining outside. (Basic but I love it)
