What's up, Playbill? It's me, Sawyer Smith. I am playing Billy Nolan in Bailiwick Chicago's Carrie! Time to head to the theater and get BLOODY!
Welcome to Chicago!!!
No trip to the theater would be complete without a healthy meal, or should I say a happy meal?
Our lovely home!!!
Some of the cast in the theatre before fight call. Check out that KILLER set...get it? KILLER? I barely know'er!
The lovely Kelly Krauter, who plays Frieda, signing in for the show. Check out those shades!
The cast starts arriving for fight call, and we were checking lights. Fight calls are not always this colorful.
SMILE for Playbill!!!
