Tell me about your character
I play Lucinda, a beautiful but evil stepsister and a psychotic and knife wielding Granny.
Did you know much about Into the Woods before you auditioned?
No, nothing at all apart from people going into the woods…oh yeah, and out of them I guess!
What’s your favourite part of the show/song?
Favourite song is Agony
What’s been the best/ worst show you’ve been in or the best/worst part you’ve played?
Best show was Return to the Forbidden Planet where I got to do Reverse Polarity with the whole audience. Such control!
Describe Into the Woods in 3 words
Trees in Woods
If you were trying to sell the show what would you say?
A real different slant on childhood favourite fairy tales. Fab music and exciting characters.
