Tell us about yourself Terrek? I'm14 and a 9th grader at the DCE IDEA Charter School. I've been with CWCT since 2017

Terrek in "There's a Monster in My Closet"

What was your first show with CWCT? I played "Toady" in "There's a Monster in my Closet" - I was 9. I think I've done 11.

Quick, name the CWCT shows you've done? Mulan(Yao), Lion King(Ed), Newsies(Biscuit),

Chitty(Goran), Snow White, Children of Eden and Rudolph (Yukon Cornelius) last fall. There  are more. That's most of them - I think I've done 29 shows to date.

Wow. When did you decide you were a "theatre kid"? I tried a lot of sports early on, but they didn't really interest me. My parents put me in a drama camp and I finally felt HOME. Oh - and when I started interrupting my friends with lyrics from my favorite shows.

Have you done shows with other groups locally - Which ones?

Central Wisconsin Children's Theatre (CWCT)

Wausau Community Theatre (WCT)

Central Wisconsin Educational Theatre Alliance (CWETA)

DC Everest Performing Arts (DCE)

Out of the Woods Theatre (OOTW)

and numerous camps and intensives

So, you've worked with just about everyone locally. If asked about CWCT, what do you say? CWCT is a great way to get to know more people in the area with similar interests as well as a great first theatre  experience. I have personal attachments to some of the CWCT shows and those are some of the happiest memories I can think of.

What roles would you really love to get? So many, but currently I think Beetlejuice from "Beetlejuice" (duh), William Shakespeare "Something's Rotten" and Aaron Burr "Hamilton".

Those are great roles. One last thing - give me a Theater joke/meme?

OK - Thank goodness not many thieves are interested in theater . . .                                     they would STEAL THE SHOW!

THANK YOU TERREK - Can't wait to see you on stage again!
