By • Feb 21st, 2009 • Category: Interviews, Pippin

Sarah Jane Scott, Player

Q: How long have you been acting? What was your first role?
A: My first role was a fanatic in the play Moses and the Freedom Fanatics. And I have been acting since 1999.

Q: What role would you kill to play?
A: I don’t think I have a role that I would kill to play. =)

Q: What’s been the most challenging part of participating in Pippin?
A: Staying healthy, and of course the choreography haha!

Q: What’s your next show or production?
A: Well, I’m not sure yet but I’m auditioning for the ballet of ‘Sleeping Beauty’

Q: What non-theater-related life goal do you have?
A: Becoming state champion in piano playing because piano is something I want to be known for other than singing, and piano is one of my passions.

Q: What is your dream vacation?
A: Italy or Scotland because they are both amazing places and one of my FAVORITE actors was born in Scotland.

Q: Would you rather have $1,000,000 or know the date you are going to die?
A: I’d rather have $1,000,000 because knowing the date you’re going to die would just make you dread everyday until that day comes.

Q: What candy bar are you most like?
A: The Butterfinger…and I’m not sure why haha

Q: Would you rather have a kangaroo or a giraffe?
A: A Giraffe because they are one of my favorite animals =)

Wendy Martin, French horn

Q: How are you like your character?
A: I am like the French horn because I can be smooth and harmonious with my sense of humor and ability to relate to others, but every now and again, I hit a sour note with a bad joke.

Q: How long have you been playing your instrument?
I’ve played the French horn since I was 11 years old. I originally started on flute for four days, but quickly found out that there were way too many flute players! I also play the piano.

Q: What role would you kill to play?
A: The role I’m already playing in life…super mom, loving friend, and horn girl a-go-go.

Q: What’s been the most challenging part of participating in Pippin?
Playing the sixteenth notes! And not crying when hearing Josh’s beautiful voice.

Q: What’s your next show or production?
A: The British Are Coming! concert with the Piedmont Symphony Orchestra.

Q: What superpower would you want to have?
A: I’d like to have the power to always lift the spirits of the people I love most, when they’re feeling down or are in need.

Q: What non-theater-related life goal do you have?
A: A goal I’ve achieved and work hard to maintain is staying fit and active. This healthy lifestyle helps me maintain my vitality and passion for life.

Q: What is your dream vacation?
A: A warm beach, with a warm man, and a drink to warm my insides.

Q: Would you rather have $1,000,000 or know the date you are going to die?
A: I’d take the money. Who wants to anticipate the day they’re going to die. That’s depressing!

Q: What candy bar are you most like?
A: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups…because they contain a perfect combination of sweetness and nuttiness…and can be shared so nicely.

Q: Would you rather have a kangaroo or a giraffe?
A: A giraffe…they’d make for a good shopping companion. You could leave them in the car and always find your way back to your vehicle in a crowded lot.

Q: If you could go back to high school but keep all the life lessons you’ve learned since your time in high school, would you do it?
A: No, I wouldn’t go back. I’ve achieved too much in my life, and I look to the future to achieve even more and to continue to live every day to the fullest.

Drew Prendergast, Ensemble, Guitar, Torch Guy

Q: How are you like your character?
A: Well, I mean I play the guitar. And I’m kind of, I don’t know, absent minded? What?

Q: How long have you been acting, and playing guitar?
A: Er, acting since I was eight I think. Playing the guitar for two years.

Q: What role would you kill to play?
A: Definitely a tie between Jamie in The Last Five Years or Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar. I mean, come on, who secretly does not want to be Judas?

Q: What’s been the most challenging part of participating in Pippin?
A: Just me? Transistioning probably. The switch from space to stage was gut-wrenching. 

Q: What superpower would you want to have?
A: Ha, controlling time because I don’t always say the right thing.

Q: What non-theater-related life goal do you have?
A: I’m really hoping to major in music education or to have my band set somewhere. www.myspace.com/thepressmen. Huh? You should visit WHAT website?

Q: What is your dream vacation?
A: The Land of the Lost

Q: Would you rather have $1,000,000 or know the date you are going to die?
A: If I had $1,000,000, I could could set all the tests necessary to find my death day! But I guess that’s pointless.

Q: What candy bar are you most like?
A: Almond Joys. White on the inside?

Q: Would you rather have a kangaroo or a giraffe?
A: Kangaraffe. Next question.

Q: If you could go back to high school but keep all the life lessons you’ve learned since your time in high school, would you do it?
A: Um, go back?
