Beth Jones, Starring as Vivienne Kensington in "Legally Blonde the Musical"

 

Q: Where did you grow up? Were there any activities you did as a child that led to your passion for theatre and the arts?
A: I grew up in Canton, Ohio. I went to a school of the arts from 4th grade on, so I always knew this was the path I wanted to take.

 

Q: Where did you study theatre?
A: I started out at Capital University and then moved to Kent State, both in Ohio.

 

Q: Where have you worked previously? What are some of your favorite roles?
A: Most of my professional career has been in Orlando, FL. Including 7 years working for the Walt Disney World Resort. I must say, performing alongside Mickey and Minnie was pretty amazing.

 

Q: How did you prepare for playing the role of Vivienne? Were there any challenges or things that you were excited about with taking on this character?
A: I had seen the movie many times and was familiar with the character. I’d never played this mean or straight of a character before, so I was curious if I could come across as such. It actually came to me pretty easily, so it’s been fun playing the nemesis of perky Elle. Especially when Vanessa and I get along so well off stage.

 

Q: You’ve been in performances for the past two weeks… what do you look forward to each performance playing Vivienne?
A: Every audience is different, so I love seeing what “this” audience will love or laugh at the most. But getting to perform with this fantastic cast has been such a treat. I look forward to all the excitement of live theater. There’s nothing else like it.

 

Q: What do you do in your spare time?
A: I’m currently pregnant with my husband’s and my first baby, so right now, my life pretty much consists of preparing for our little fella. Other than that, I love to find new ways to be creative, whether it’s with photography or updating my blog or YouTube channel. I’m basically having fun entertaining myself. (And anyone else who’s around.)

 

Right: Beth Jones as Vivienne Kensington in "Legally Blonde the Musical."
