That sounds sad.

It’s not, actually.

You’re in the second grade. Do you have homework? 

Yes. Math, reading comprehension, and stuff like that.

Does the show go past your bedtime?

I think so.

Is the Grinch scary?

When I was younger, I thought the Grinch was really scary, but now I just know he’s a person.

Do your brothers like watching you onstage?

I don’t know.

What’s your previous acting experience?

Last summer I did Annie at Moonlight. I was Molly. 

Dream role?

I would like to be Annie.

When was the first time you saw The Grinch at The Old Globe?

We started seeing it when I was 2. We stopped when I was 6. We were too busy.

Was the Grinch scary?

I can’t say no to that!

What kind of person is Cindy-Lou Who?

Sweet and nice, and she doesn’t hurt people’s feelings, too.

Favorite play you’ve ever been in?

A Christmas one at my church. I just kind of
ran around. I was a
crazy angel. 

Will you go out for ice cream after your performances, or go to bed?

Ice cream, probably.

I think it would be the young Fiona in Shrek.

Favorite musical?

I have two favorites. My first is Wicked. My other one is Shrek.
