Sophomore Brooklyn Hall plays a 13 year old girl named “Laurie” in “Brighton Beach Memoirs” at the Amarillo Little Theater. The cast has been rehearsing since Nov. 28, and the show will run until Sunday, Jan. 29. Tickets can be bought at amarillolittletheatre.org, or purchased over the phone at (806) 355-9991. Hall said she started doing theatre when she was in middle school.
“When I was 11, my middle school class went and saw one of the school performances, ‘Tom Sawyer’,” Hall said. “I loved it so much that the next season I asked my mom to sign me up for a theatre class. About 2 weeks into the theatre class, my teacher said that they were having an audition for the next show, ‘James and the Giant Peach’, so I tried out and got a part and have been auditioning ever since.”
Hall said she is always a little nervous before every show and can overcome the nerves with the help of her cast members.
“Before every show the whole cast and crew goes into one of the rehearsal studios and does this little ‘break a leg’ chant, and basically just wishes everyone good luck in a fun way,” Hall said.
Hall said she enjoys theatre because it helps her to become someone else when performing.
“My favorite part of performing is getting to explore my creativity through a character that I don’t get to be everyday,” Hall said. “I also love performing because I am constantly surrounded by such loving and supporting people.”
