Interview conducted by Michaela Alcantar
Michaela: How long have you been performing with Stage Coach Players?
Emmanuel: This will be my first performance with Stage Coach Players.
Michaela: What is it about performing arts and theatre that you enjoy most?
Emmanuel: What I enjoy most about performing is this feeling of peace and happiness. That knowing of “this is where I belong” (you’ll get that reference when you see the show).
Michaela: What thoughts are going through your head about performing The Little Mermaid?
Emmanuel: My biggest thought is how blessed I am to get to perform again. This will be the first time for me back on stage since 2016. That might not seem like a long time, but for me, that seems like forever.
Michaela: What are you looking forward to the most while performing The Little Mermaid?
Emmanuel: I’m looking forward to everything coming together and making magic on stage. We have a great team and I’m excited to share our hard work with the city of DeKalb.
Michaela: Is there anything you would like to tell the audience before the show?
Emmanuel: Get ready to have a mer-mazing time under the sea!
