Q: What’s your favorite thing about the new director, Tommie Williams?
A: She is for the students, no matter what kind of questions we come to her with. She is there for us, and she helps us and instructs us and guides us, and she’s just a wonderful, positive influence in this theater. She’s a really big go-getter.
Q: Do you have a favorite playwright?

Q: Do you have a least favorite show that you’ve done?

Q: If you had a different name, what would you like it to be?
