In the Wings: Miss Nelson is Missing. Meet Taylor Bundy.
Taylor Bundy plays Principal Humleker in Miss Nelson is Missing, the second show of the 2011-2012 Civic Youth Theatre season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The script is by Jeffrey Hatcher, based on the book by Harry Allard and James Marshall.
Question: Why did you audition for Miss Nelson is Missing?
Taylor Bundy: It's going to be one of my last shows at Civic Theatre, definitely my last show with Laurie Russell, the director, before I leave good old Indiana.
Q: What is the best part about playing Principal Humleker?
T.B.: I get to say stupid things like "Hubba, hubba" all the time.
Q: Who is your favorite teacher?
T.B.: Probably Miss Anderson. She's awesome. She taught English at Wea Ridge Middle School.
Q: Have you ever acted as bad as the kids in Room 207?
T.B.: I got written up a lot for being not focused. I walked around a lot while kids were doing homework; I was a little ADD.
