Stepping Into The Spotlight

By Kathryn Stephenson

For many, being in front of a crowd can be one of the most nerve wracking, heart wrenching tasks, but while a lot of people avoid the spotlight, some students at Timberline seek it. On September 13th, Timberlines theater department hosted auditions for their upcoming play Radium Girls, drawing quite the crowd of hopefuls.

For senior Reonna Harris, this was her first audition. “my heart was going so hard, pounding so fast,” says Harris, regarding her post- monologue nerves. Although auditioning can be anxiety inducing at times, Harris also points out how natural it felt being on stage, saying “It just felt like I was talking to somebody,” during cold reads.

Though this was her first time auditioning, she felt confident because she came prepared, and brings up how others can do the same, saying “Go to somebody who knows what they’re doing,” for acting advice. For Harris, she finds that her dad is a good source of guidance, as he has experience acting.

All of Harris’s preparation has paid off, as she has been cast as Mrs. Roeder in the upcoming fall production. She suggests that other people audition for Timberline shows, “it’s been fun so far, and I would have regretted not doing it,” says Harris. “I’m glad I stepped out of my comfort zone!”   

You can come see Radium Girls in the Timberline theatre starting November 2nd when it takes the stage for a two week run.
