PP: There are so many great songs in this show! Do you have a favorite?

Carol: My favorite song is Footloose because I enjoyed dancing to it as a teenager. My favorite scenes are the ones that I get to act in because that is the most fun. 

PP: Do any of the songs get stuck in your head?

Carol: Somebody’s Eyes gets stuck in my head because I know what it is like when people disapprove of your ways of doing things and how it can make you feel like you are under a microscope.

PP: Have you learned anything about yourself as a performer during the rehearsal process?

Carol: I have found that as a performer, I can push through difficulties better than when we first started rehearsing.

Come see the results of Carol’s hard work!
