Question: Why did you audition for Miss Nelson is Missing?
Dean Rhoda: I wanted to audition for this play because I saw a bunch of other people saying how good their acting skills were, and I want to be like them. I'm starring in Miss Nelson is Missing so I can get started on my acting career.
Q: What is the best part about playing Raymond?
D.R.: He's intelligent. He can be sort of nerdy.
