Q: What is it like playing the lead male role in the musical?

A: It’s really cool because it’s only my third musical and I’m the lead after not having that much experience.

Q: Did you expect to get the role?

A: I was surprised when I got it because I am a junior and it’s only my third musical.

Q: How did you react to the news?

A: I was really excited and wanted to hug [Mrs. Pam Neth, English, and her husband].

Q: What are your feelings about doing the first show in the new auditorium?

A: I’m really excited because we have a whole new facility to be in. It’s really large and really professional.

Q: Will there be any difficulties performing in a new facility?

A: We’ve been in the LGI for the past two years, so we have to accommodate for being in a larger space and we’re not really used to it.

Q: What is the hardest part about your role?

A: Memorizing song lyrics for me is the hardest part about playing Eric.

Q: How is your chemistry with Hannah Souronis (11), who is playing the role of Ariel?

A: It’s good because we’ve acted together before in a lot of shows.

Q: Why should people come see the musical?

A: They should see it because it’s the first show in the new auditorium. It’s a really well-known show with a great cast and awesome music.
