Meet Meg, a Performer in Our Upcoming Show

Today we present a blog interview with a Longwood Theatre freshman Meg Daniel. “She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms” by Qui Nguyen is her first Longwood show.

Q-Tell us a little about yourself?

A-I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. In high school I did two shows but this is my first big role. I went to Appomattox Regional Governor’s School, but grew up in Chesterfield. I have worked with Chris Klinger and now get to work with his wife Professor Lacy Klinger, the director.

Q- What got you interested in theatre?

A- My fourth grade teacher told be about a director friend and I said “I want to be in a movie.”. She then told me about a production of Annie, I got a part and played an orphan. I’ve been hooked ever since!

Q- How is this production different for others you’ve done?

A-The experience itself. The cast, Professor Klinger, working with Matt Howard. We wasted so much time in high school during rehearsals and I’ve had a great time. If I have a bad day, I go to rehearsal and I feel SO much better. It makes me happy. One of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had as an actor. I love it a lot.

Q-Why did you choose Longwood?

A- Honestly because of Dr. Scarrow. I didn’t want to come here at first, but then I came for new Lancer Days and met Dr. Scarrow with my parents. Once I left that day it hit me, this is where I need to go. My Dad said the same thing.

Q- What’s the one thing you hope people who see the show take away from the performance?

A- I want everyone to take away the fun. We’re not going through easy time right now and even though there’s sad things in the show I want them to laugh and enjoy it. Cause we need that. Let’s have some fun!
