Apr 27, 2023 | High School #505 News

Meet two of our actors, Jillian Anderson and Madison Cirrincione, who are Prodigal Daughter/Polly and Runaway in our show, One Stoplight Town!

What sort of person is going to love this show?

Jillian: I say people who have lived in this town for most of their lives and can relate the most!

Maddy: I think most of the people that live here or have recently moved here. 

What’s challenging about bringing this script to life?

Jillian: For me, the most challenging part to bringing it to life is having a conversation while trying to remember your lines. 

Maddy: Probably the longer monologues and adding movement into it!

Why did you want to be involved in this production?

Jillian: It’s something I really enjoyed doing last year and something I was really proud of!

Maddy: I thought that it would be something fun to do and maybe even make a career out of!

Who in the show is most like their character?

JIllian: Morgan

Maddy: Dakota 

Who’s the least?

Jillian: Mazey

Maddy: I also say Mazey. 

What do you love about this character?

Jillian: I love being the “all-knowing” and being able to guide my partner through a hard time AND getting to argue with Morgan without getting into trouble! 🙂

Maddy: I get to be sassy! 🙂 

Without giving anything away, what’s your favorite line of dialogue?

Jillian: “Eggs belong on a breakfast plate, not on a burger.”

Maddy: “Don’t ever ask me to peel you again, Claire!” 

What’s your advice to anyone wanting to do the play next year?

Jillian: Just go for it! Don’t be worried if it will be scary, just go for it and have fun with it!

Maddy: Be loud and be proud! 

Come see One Stoplight Town this Friday at 7PM or Saturday at 2PM!
