How many shows have you been in at the Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine? I have acted in 10 shows, but I have worked backstage for many more shows.

What do you do when you aren’t doing a play at the Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine? I play soccer, lacrosse, box lacrosse, and hang out with my friends. I also write, read books, and go to school.

What do you like about acting? I like the sense of community that happens when a group of people get together to do something they love. I also like the outlet acting gives me for string emotions.

What character are you playing in The Circus Ship? What do you want people to know about your character? I am the apprentice director for this show. I want people, especially other kids, to know that there are other ways to be involved with shows besides acting.

What do you want people to know about our show? I think the show is really funny and touching. The animals have personalities that we can relate to, and I’ve learn so much about human nature during rehearsals.
