November 21, 2013 § Leave a comment
We asked a few questions of Myrin Vollkommer (8) and Sophie Rohr (9), our two actors sharing the role of Tiny Tim in our upcoming production of A Christmas Carol, to get their take on the show and the holiday season.
Did you know the story of A Christmas Carol before rehearsals started?
Myrin: Yes, I liked when Scrooge changed his attitude.
Sophie: I sort of knew the story because I watched the Disney movie. I thought it was cool with all of the visits from the spirits.
What’s your favorite moment in this show?
Myrin: When Scrooge meets the delivery guy and says “I want to kiss you.”
Sophie: My favorite moment is when Tiny Tim says “God bless us, everyone!”
Why do you like playing Tiny Tim?
Myrin: Because I like acting.
Sophie: I like having the last line in the show.
What’s the hardest part of playing Tiny Tim?
Myrin: The crutch.
Sophie: There is no hard part. It’s just fun!
What are you most looking forward to once performances begin?
Myrin: Performing in front of a live audience.
Sophie: Having fun performing.
What’s your favorite part of the holiday season?
Myrin: Getting presents.
Sophie: Hanging out with my family.
Are there any special gifts on your wishlist this year?
Sophie: I really want a microscope because I love science.
