Two Theatrical Campers Hit the Stage!
Emma (left) and Alexa (right), both of whom will be Juniors this coming summer, will be performing next month in an all-time classic musical production of Annie at the Herricks Community Playhouse and we are so excited for them!
Both Emma and Alexa have demonstrated their flare for the theater in many of THC’s shows. During the summer of 2010 Emma was cast as Andy in THC’s production of TOY STORY and as a munchkin in THC’s production of The Wizard of Oz. Alexa was in both the Cadet and Sophomore Talent Shows and won Sophomore year! Both girls were also featured in THC’s Glee Showcase last summer and were in multiple numbers including “Poker Face”, “Rolling in the Deep”, “Time Warp,” and “Don’t Stop Believin’’”.
We asked Emma and Alexa what their favorite part of performing was and they said:
Alexa: “Getting to sing and act and to show everyone what I can do. It’s so much fun!”
Emma: “I love the lights shining on my face and being center stage… Although I’m rarely nervous, I am always excited! I love making other people smile!”
Both of them said that they are thrilled to be sharing this experience with their best friend – each other! 🙂
Although Emma has been involved in acting on and off since 1st grade, Emma said she really learned how much fun it is to perform with friends when she first began participating in camp performances. Alexa says she’s been writing songs and skits as far back as she can remember and loves to be in camps shows.
Both girls went to the Annie audition together with the hopes of being called back for another audition. Not only were they called-back, but they both made the final cuts and are set to perform in just a few short weeks! Alexa and Emma not only share a love of friendship for each other, but for the theater too, and are able to put the two together summer after summer at Tyler Hill. BREAK A LEG, Alexa & Emma!
