Gael (Gael Smejkal)
I have been performing on stage for 19+ years. Some of my favorite roles include Phantom in Rocky Horror Show, Jack's mother in Into The Woods, Chorus in Grease, and every role in I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change! I have about 20 different laughs, it all depends on how funny something is, the style of comedy, my level of tiredness or where I am tickled. WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WOULD DO TO BETTER SOCIETY/THE WORLD? Religion. Most wars, fights, disagreements are started by having a difference in faith/beliefs. If we all could understand that being different and believing different things makes for a richer and more interesting world. The world would be a better and more beautiful place. If we could see thinking differently as an advantage rather than a downfall, what couldn't we accomplish?! Instead of condemning people for their religion, instead listen to what they believe and why they believe it. Then ask them to do the same for you. If we take the NEED to be right out of the equation we will realize we have learned something and grown. Different beliefs is a beautiful thing, if we can just remove the hate. As someone famous once said, "Love Thy Neighbor". Remove the hate and replace it with love; then we can have peace.
Selina (Selina Lopez)
I have dabbled in the arts a bit as a child. Theatre was always so much fun so when Sierra Vista Community Theatre announced they were holding auditions for Rocky Horror Show I decided to dabble once again.
