The Christmas Pageant in church when I always wanted the little piece of paper with the most lines on it.

Reading fairy tales out loud in the third grade... made me dizzy with power.

When I was in high school, my voice teacher gave me her old record of Sunday in the Park and I copied onto a cassette tape (!).

I remember listening to it on the way to school and being totally late for class because I was crying in my car in the parking lot. I remember thinking, "If I can be a part of shows like this, I want to do it forever."

Cut to me getting my audition appointment for the revival and trying to cancel it because I knew if I didn’t get it, I wouldn’t be able to live with myself.
