A lot of celebrity singers and actors get their start on the big stage in their little towns. I bet you’re wondering what that big stage is? Well, it’s the Theatre stage! These celebrities are examples of what can happen if you give theatre a shot: Nick Jonas, Jesse McCartney, Kristin Chenoweth, Al Pacino, Jennifer Aniston and Emma Stone just to name a few. Kristin Chenoweth, a southern gal from Oklahoma with Nashville roots, recently sat down with Nancy Rosati of Talkinbroadway.com (http://www.talkinbroadway.com/) for an interview.
When asked “Did you want to act too or just sing at the time?”
Chenoweth responded: I thought that I wanted to be a recording person. I was really into ballet too. I went to college and got my undergraduate degree in Musical Theater and that's when I started doing plays. I did a drama in high school, but really it was in college where I gained so much experience and started getting hired to do summer stock. I was very lucky because I got roles. That's the best teaching tool that you can get - by doing it. That’s sort of what happened to me.
You heard her-get out there and do it! Have you ever been in a play?
