OMG…my first time seeing School of Rock! That was intense, I couldn’t stop singing and dancing!
Best interaction you have had with another theater fan:

2nd: when I ran into my virtual friend, Rachel, at the School Of Rock stage door! It was so funny because we dabbed with some of the cast members haha!
Why do you love theater?
I can’t live one single day without it. Theater is what I love to do, I can’t even begin to explain how important it is to me.
