Question: What is fun about Robin?
Clara Sands: What I think is neat about Robin is she has glow-in-the-dark stuff all around her body. I think it's pretty cool.
Q: Why did you try out for "Monster in the Closet"?
C.S.: I tried out for "Monster in the Closet" because I thought it might be cool to have a part in a monster play. I like monsters a lot. My favorite monster in the show is Murray because he's so clumsy. He reminds me of Clumsy Smurf.
Q: What do you think the audience will like the most about the show?
C.S.: I think the audience will like most how Tom comes and yells at his sister and they fight, and how the Mom does jams when she's vacuuming and bumps into Nathan.
