Favorite asc moment:

Once during a performance of Peter and the Starcatcher a member of the audience yelled “Not the cat!” candidly when the cat was tossed into the audience and I just love the moments when an audience is so into a show that they cannot contain their reactions.

favorite asctc moment:

When I was a camper in 2017, there was a day of blocking when they were not doing any scenes that I was in, so I spent the entire morning with our production intern, Alex. We just played around with body leads and commedia characters/masks/lazzis and I got to learn about a whole new style of theatre that I had never heard of and I fell in love with how theatre has evolved through time.
