PPJR:  What has been different about your role in Into the Woods, Jr. than the others in the past?

Lillian: I have to be snooty and have a heady voice which is different.
PPJR:  Is there a particular part of the show or a specific number that you enjoy?
Lillian:  I like “Agony” because it shows what brothers are like. (Even if they are princes!) It is funny and they are always competing.
We think you’re also going to enjoy the song “Agony” too! As an understudy, Lillian will play Little Red Riding Hood in the Sunday 3 pm performance.Into the Woods Banner 2 (2)

Parkway Playhouse, located in the Appalachian town of Burnsville, NC, is a haven of theatre talent. While people come to the mountains to get away, Parkway Playhouse is a natural gathering place to connect. Likewise, we are an extension of traditional mountain talents: singing, dancing, and, foremost, storytelling. By giving rise to energetic new voices and through a wide variety of plays and musicals, we invite our audience into experiences that are thought-provoking, adventurous, and entertaining. Together we reimagine the world in every live performance, creating dynamic conversations that last far beyond the curtain call. This blog is will feature stories, helpful information, insight and features about the performances.
