Playing the Role of Annelle, by Courtney Pierce

Filed under: Back Stage Blog — julianw @ 9:55 am

It has been quite an experience playing Annelle. I have always enjoyed character roles more than straight roles, so this is right up my alley. I get to play three different characters in one. The other actresses in the cast have made it very easy to slide into this role. It’s always easier when you work with extremely talented actors. You’re able to give and receive so much more. This is also true about your director. We had the pleasure of having a great director. Kyle Barnette took time with each of us to develop our characters. He also spent a good amount of time unifying us as a cast. This show is only successful when the actresses are close. Kyle took six complete strangers and made us friends.

This show has been wonderful and it has been a joy to work with the cast and crew. I truly hope I get to do it again soon.
