My costume changes... Bazinga!

 

What's the funniest thing that has happened during rehearsal?

We were rehearsing Good night and thank you where Eva ends her relationship with Magaldi (and other men) and I'm supposed to sing "Do up your trousers and go!". Unfortunately I sang "Take off your trousers and go!" - whoops!

Apart from performing, what's another skill that you have?

Eating a lot of KFC - yum! (other fast food chains are available)

 

What night of show week is your favourite?

Definitely opening night - there is such a buzz backstage and the adrenalin keeps you going!

 


Why should people come and watch the show?

The music is so beautiful and we all put in so much work rehearsing and preparing it for the public. I really feel that the people of Exmouth are going to enjoy this one xxx
