"Kate told me that Sidney Pellissier is a great director and I'd learn a lot from him about acting," Lisa said. "Also I found the characters superficial at first, but there are so many layers underneath. Those layers are fun to portray."
Lisa has performed in Civic Theatre shows with large casts -- Disney's High School Musical and Children of Eden -- but has found that working in a small cast creates an intense rehearsal process.
"Audiences will enjoy the humor, but they will find characters they can relate to because of some relationship they're either in or have been in the past," she said.
Private Lives opens Friday, May 8, and runs each Friday, Saturday and Sunday through May 24. The Friday and Saturday evening shows begin at 8:00 p.m.; the Sunday afternoon shows begin at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for youth.
