Alexa Edelman is a newcomer to the Parkway Playhouse stage, portraying the character of Sheree in The Dixie Swim Club. Come and see her in our last weekend of performances!
PPH: What has been your favorite part of rehearsal?
Alexa: My favorite part of rehearsal has been the time we have spent at the start of each day discussing our characters. We have really worked out a lot of the history between our characters, which has added so much depth to what I do onstage.
PPH: What do you like about acting at Parkway Playhouse?
Alexa: Being that this is my first endeavor at Parkway, I have really enjoyed getting to know more of the talented acting community in Western NC… and the drive – it’s a long drive from Asheville, but so so beautiful here in Burnsville!
PPH: Tell us a little bit about your character? What about your character is the least like you?
Alexa: The element that is the least like me, and frankly the hardest to relate with my character, Sheree, is that she is always the first one to any particular event. She’s not just on time, but early!!! That is so hard to wrap my mind around! On the other hand, at the start of the show, I am the exact same age as Sheree.
