Being the Evil Queen in Happily Whatever After has been quite a learning experience for me. The cast taught me so much and our Director Chris Berube has been such a wonderful teacher to me. I feel from every performance I learn how to be a better actress. How to have better timing, how to deliver my lines in a way that will entertain the audience better than the last time I performed.
When people ask me what is the best way to learn how to act, I will now say, "Improv first, then live theater". It teaches you how to dissect a script, how to hit your marks and do it naturally as if those words were your own.
Yes Margie Haber Studios is a wonderful school and I believe everyone should go there if they can afford it. Improv is the first and last skill you should master as an actor, but having a background in theater is something that everyone should have in order to be successful. I highly recommend you see Chris Berube's plays.
I will be the Evil Queen for 7 more weeks and then Im off on another project.
Another great thing about theatre is you can do tv and film by day and perform once a week on stage. Come and see me before I give my crown to someone else!
I'll post the schedule asap. Basically...
For the next three Tuesdays our show will be at 9:30pm. Then the last four Tuesdays it will be at 8pm. I'll post it for you so no worries! (My computer is down so Im posting from my cell)
