Parkway Playhouse Family “The McCourrys”

We are proud to announce that we have a theatre Legend on stage for A Christmas Carol… OK.  OK.  So, that’s his name.  (Good one, Mom!)  Our next family in the spotlight is Gina and Legend McCourry from Bakersville, North Carolina.Gina and Legend square

Gina, is this your first Parkway Playhouse play?

Yes, it is!  I’ve ushered the last few summers and love watching the shows.  I was involved in technical theatre and a bit of acting in college (13 years ago).

What made you audition?

It was actually my son who wanted to audition originally–then I thought how neat it would be to do a show together.  This was the perfect opportunity…a real “Christmas experience to share together.”

What is your favorite part of the play?

I’ve enjoyed getting to meet other parents and people who also enjoy theatre.  I also love observing and learning how a play comes together.


So, Legend, why did you want to be a part of the cast?

I wanted to be with my friends and practice for when I grow up.

How are you encouraging your Mom?

I help her practice the songs when we’re in the car.

What is your favorite scene?

I like the part when we throw the snowballs at the girls!


Frankly, I’ll bet it is safe to assume that is most of the boys’ favorite scene!
