In the Wings: Pride and Prejudice. Meet Tori Rosa.
Tori Rosa plays Lydia Bennet in Pride and Prejudice, the third show of the 2011-2012 Civic Youth Theatre season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The script is by Jon Jory based on the novel by Jane Austen.
Question: Why did you audition for Pride and Prejudice? Did you know the novel before you auditioned?
Tori Rosa: I hadn't read the book before I auditioned. I auditioned to challenge myself; it's a different show than I'm used to doing.
Q: How would you describe Lydia?
T.R.: Lydia is the youngest sister and very outgoing. She wants to be the best at everything; she wants to be better than all of her sisters.
Q: What's fun about playing Lydia?
T.R.: She's really overdramatic. She's either really, really happy or throwing a temper tantrum, so that's fun.
Q: What do you think an audience will enjoy most about the show?
T.R.: They'll like seeing how different all of the sisters are, but they still go together.
Q: Do you believe in love at first sight?
T.R.: Yeah. I guess. I don't know.
