Scarlett Clark, a 9 year old Stagelighter, takes four classes per week at Stagelight Performing Arts including Acting II, Ballet, Tap and private Vocal lessons. Scarlett is a focused and determined student who recently got cast in a staged reading of the new play Fledgling at StagesTheatre in Fullerton. With a mostly adult cast, Scarlett held her own as a young professional. We caught up with Scarlett to ask all about her experience.
SPA: Tell me about your role in the show.
SC: I was Quill, a baby bird. She is kind of a silly character who is very jumpy and active.
SPA: What was the most difficult thing about this role?
SC: I had to move around a lot! There was no dancing, no choreography, I just had to jump around the stage. It was a lot of energy. I also had many lines to memorize–more than I’ve ever had, so that was difficult.
SPA: How it working with mostly adults rather than just kids?
SC: It was really fun!
SPA: What was your favorite part about being in this show?
SC: I made friends with the cast, and we made jokes and had a lot of fun back stage!
Well done, Scarlett! We look forward to watching your continued successes as a performer!
