Last year Abby stepped into the role of Lady Bracknell in her high school's production of The Importance of Being Earnest. The girl who had the role became ill and Abby took over just a month before the production. She did a great job!
Now our local theatre is putting on the show, and they are going to have a teen shadow cast. Each role will have a teen selected for that part and the teen will work with the adult actor playing the role at all rehearsals. Then the teens will get to put on their own performances.
Abby tried out, got a call back for two different parts, and was cast in the role of Cecily. It should be a great teaching experience for her. I am quite proud!
