Meet Nicole …

“ It’s a little something for when you’re feeling blue, you know?” — Nicole
Q: What made you audition for “The Drowsy Chaperone”?

A: I would to work with Brad Baker and Mark Mullino any day. I was also pumped to possibly work with Vonda Bowling and Paula Morlean. As for the show, I think it has a lot of heart.

Q: What’s the process been like? Are you ready for the opening?

A: I’ve learned more about dancing than I ever have before! Paula and Mindy have kicked my butt in the best way. I’m a huge “Toledo Surprise” fan, but my favorite scene is actually “Man in Chair” monologue. This show is fun, but that Joey will break your heart. Meet Joey here.

Q: Who is your character and what is she like?

A. I’m a maid in the ensemble. My job is to help create the world of the musical and my maid character is having the best day of her life. She’s obsessed with those actors.

Q: If you could be in any musical, what would it be?

A: Either Sister in Fly by Night, I’m obsessed! Or Mary in Merrily We Roll Along. I’m a classically trained actor so I’m also really interested in doing more Shakespeare around town, I miss it.

Q: What’s next for you after “The Drowsy Chaperone”?

A: Boy do I! The auditions never end. DFW has some fantastic shows coming up. Right now, I’m prepping for a million auditions, taking a playwriting class at DTC and recently became an Artistic Associate with Sundown Collaborative Theatre.

Q: What’s something very few people know about you?

A: I can juggle and sing at the same time. I’m also developing my cookie decorating skills. As for a fascinating interest, I’m almost too obsessed with puppetry.
