Hello everyone, I'm Katie Galbreath! I am a teenage actress in this show, playing the role of Pam. Things are going great at Fruitcakes rehearsals, and I think we are getting a lot done very quickly. I love the process and getting to know people who love what I love.
Personally, Marc [Hammes, Director] has helped me and many others remember to react to what's going on. Multiple times during rehearsals, he'll stop and make us think of how our character would respond to what's happening, even if we don't have lines. It's the little things that really help a show come to life.
Every rehearsal has its own spark to it. We're always laughing, whether it's when Marc ran out to get ice cream from the ice cream truck, or trying to keep the chaotic scenes from becoming actually chaotic. When you're having fun and doing what you love, it's never dull.
I'd love to do theatre professionally. I plan to continue it throughout my life, and I hope to write, direct and possibly teach as well. I plan on having another career for stability, but I never get tired of drama. Even if I am busy or stressed, it's always been more of an escape/relax rather than a burden.
My first and only other On Stage performance was in 2013. I participated in a Youth Summer Workshop and portrayed Ethel and the Lion in Circus Tales. Theater work is the best type of work to have.
I'm so excited for people to come see our show. Whether you're confident, nervous, or completely calm, everyone always gives it their all on performance nights, and it makes the show so amazing. It's one of the best feelings being on stage, entertaining others, and having fun.
Marc has been working really hard to put this show together by modifying set getting props and costumes, running rehearsals, and so much more! In the show, Pam says, "Never a dull moment in McCord's Ferry", but I would say, "Never a dull moment at On Stage!"
