Q – Why did you decide to audition for All Shook Up?
A – I auditioned for All Shook Up because I read the script and fell in love with the humor of the show. I really enjoy farce and campy musicals, and the fact that this one is full of Elvis music was the icing on the cake.
Q -What shows might people have seen you in before?
A – Last summer at Parkway, audiences might remember me as one of the ‘scientific dogs’ from the Small House of Uncle Thomas ballet in The King & I. I was also Jim Hawkins’ mother and Anne Bonny in Treasure Island.
Q – What has been your favorite moment from rehearsal thus far?
A – Do I have to choose a favorite? I have enjoyed so many moments from rehearsals. There is so much playing going on onstage, that I am still cracking up at my fellow actors. Everyone in this cast has such a good sense of humor that I’m laughing at something completely different every night – which is how I can confidently say that the audience is going to enjoy this show!
Q – How have you prepared for your character?
A – Chapstick and Binaca. Have I said too much?
Q – If you got to hang out with Elvis Presley for a day, where would you take him and what would you talk about?
A – If I got to hang out with Elvis Presley for a day, we’d take his rag top to the passion pit to see one of his flicks and I’d squeal as he sang to me!
Q – Anything else that you’d like people to know about you?
A – Once All Shook Up closes, you can see me onstage at Asheville Community Theatre as Miss Tipdale in Not Now, Darling, which runs August 14th – 30th.
Come see Kristen and the rest of the cast of All Shook Up July 25th-August 8th!
