Why do you like performing in shows at Yorba Linda Spotlight? The cast and the crew and everyone at Spotlight is so sweet and helpful and they are like family.

What is your dream role? Frankie Vali in JERSEY BOYS or Billy Flynn in CHICAGO.

Of the roles you’ve played, which has been your favorite? Definitely Mal in Addams Family because he has such a drastic change in character from the first scene to the last scene.

Has Spotlight helped you grow as a performer? If so, how? For sure because before spotlight I had never been cast in a lead role, so Spotlight helped with my self confidence and really peaked my interest in theater.

What do you like to do when your not performing? I like to be active, so I will go to the gym or trampoline parks but mostly when I’m not at Spotlight rehearsal, I’m most likely at OCSA rehearsal.

If you could choose a show for Spotlight to produce, what would it be and why? Probably Charlie and the Chocolate Factory because it’s such a fun show.

What are your strongest and weakest traits as a performer? My strongest trait is probably my comedic timing/sense of humor and my weakest trait is the fact that I can’t keep a straight face during scenes.

Of Spotlight’s past shows, which was your favorite and why? Addams Family because the cast was the closest cast that I have ever encountered.

Anything else you want to say? Spotlight has really changed my life and I think that Side Show is going to be an amazing show that everyone should come see.
