'Defined by her long hair...'

An interview with Sophie Stadie playing Rapunzel

How many shows have you done with Simply Theatre?

1 - Into the Woods as Rapunzel

Tell me a bit about your character

Very lonely, naïve, trapped by her mother and treated like a child her entire life. Rapunzel is defined by her long hair which her mother cuts, causing her to go insane. (Along with other factors)

Did you know much about Into the Woods before you auditioned?

Vaguely. I knew of it and some of the characters.

What is your favourite part of the show/song?

The song, ‘Agony’, even though I’m not in it!

What’s been the best/worst show you’ve been in or the best/worst part you’ve played?

Apart from Simply Theatre, I played Belle in, ‘Beauty and the Beast.’

If you were trying to sell the show, what would you say?

It’s such a fast paced, exciting show with so many talented performers! You could not possibly get bored with all the excitement going on onstage at all times.
