This is my first interview with Brittany.

What was the name of the Play?
The name of the play was the Wizard of Oz.                      

Who directed the play?
Katy Porter directed it. She’s a good director. She went to high school with my mommy but that’s not why I got a part. 

How many students were in the cast?
I’d say there were about 75 people. 

What was your role?
I had three roles in the play. My main one was a Munchkin Teacher. My second one was a poppy in a poppy field. My favorite one was a flying monkey. 

Can you describe the personalities of your characters?
The munchkin teacher was a kind munchkin. The poppies were under a spell by the wicked witch! The monkeys were loud and scary. 

Did you have any lines?
Mostly the main characters had lines. My characters mostly had singing. “You’ve killed her so completely that we thank you very sweetly”, the munchkin teacher said that line. As a poppy I just sang, and for a flying monkey just made weird monkey noises. 

What was your favorite song?
My favorite song was Ding Dong the Wicked Witch Is Dead

If you had a chance to be in another play, would you do it?
It depends if I’m too busy. 

What is your dream role? 
I really want to play Jan Brady in a new Brady Bunch TV show.
