Tiny Tim

I didn’t know about A Christmas Carol until last year when I auditioned, and now I’m in it this year! I’ve seen the Mickey Mouse version, but that’s all.

My agent asked me if I wanted to be in a play and I said, “Sure, that’d be a fun opportunity!” In the audition I had to sing a Christmas song and memorize a monologue. I sang “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”

I like being Tiny Tim because I can really relate to him. I also had a hard time when I was little. It’s just exciting to be a part of the cast. It’s a big opportunity, and it’s a very touching role. I am confident about being the first girl Tiny Tim. I am excited to show other people that girls can do anything!

I’m excited about opening night. And I like costume fittings, because I am into sewing. My dog is furious with his dog toys and always rips them, so my dad and I sew them back together.

Around Christmastime, my family and I family volunteer at Feed My Starving Children. It’s really fun.
