Q&A with Jennifer

Name your favourite YPT production:

My favourite YPT production was Mary Poppins.

Describe your favourite Drama School memory:

My favourite memory was when I ran an activity on the first day of camp and one of the actions a student did was so hilarious we included it as the first scene in the final performance. I loved how the play was created from such an organic and real moment, and this really set a positive and uplifting tone for the rest of the play.

What would the central theme of a play written about you be?

The central theme would revolve around family and love. Family is everything to me and I would not be where I am without the support of the people closest around me.
